Dear family of Teresa,
My condolences on the loss of Teresa,
Jesus well knew the Bible statement:" Time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all"[Ecclesiastes 9:11]. He knew that
sometimes bad things just happen.
wonderful future resurrection hope is the promise found atI] John 5:28,29.
Revelation 21:3,4 states that in the future ' death will be no more. and pain
will be no more, the former things will have passed away.'
Our Creator, Jehovah God, by means of his son Jesus, is going to undo the tragedies that touch our lives today and we will be able to welcome back onto the paradise earth,our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death.
There is much Bible-based comfort to be found on the website www.jw.org
sincerely dianne mullins
