To Aunt Ruthie’s kids, I just heard about your Mom today from Auntie Pauline in PEI...perhaps you don’t even remember me - but I am a cousin & have fond memories of when my folks would visit your folks in Morewood...I distinctly remember your Dad making lasagna & when it was served up, each piece sat brilliantly on your plate like a piece of cake!!!! I think I actually wrote that in a note to your Mom when your Dad passed away...I really hope she was amused by the impression that left on me!!! I am very sorry for all of you losing your Mom, I of course have not seen any of you for many, many years, but wanted to at least send my heartfelt condolences whether you recall who I am or not, I remember each & every one of you & my heart was very sad today to hear about your Mom...knowing your parents, I’m sure all of you have hearts full of good memories & I hope they give you comfort over the years but especially now at this very difficult time! Take care & again my heartfelt sympathy to all....

Please accept my most sincere sympathy for the death of your loved one. We can find comfort in the word of God because it assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15). God promises to give life back to millions of people who have died, and he desires to do so very soon. We know this from what a servant of God from the past, Job, asked God: “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service (death) until my relief comes. You (Jehovah) will call, and I (Job) will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." (Job 14:14, 15) God is longing to give life back to those who have died. Perhaps these words do not calm your pain but we are certain that God will resurrect all those who demonstrate faith in the sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ. Reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you the hope and strength to keep going until all of God’s promises are fulfilled. May these words bring you and your family much comfort from Jehovah God, the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4).
