    I am truly sorry for the loss and pain that Shelly and the Watson family and friends are feeling because of losing Diana recently in death. Most of us have had to endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death. What helped me the most was prayer and faith in our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah God’s promises like found here at 1 Corinthians 15: 26 and it tells us: “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” God’s kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25, Acts 24:15) Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live……And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it.”For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on Him and He will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18 my email address; myranj@centurytel.net
