Dear family, I want to express my sympathy to any and all of Lois who might remember me. Harvey, Shellie, girls, I am sorry to not be able to attend visitation. Lois was always pleasant and friendly to me. We were always happy when she was cooking at the cafe in Milton. I pray your faith, the love of God, with warm and comforting memories will see you thru this sorrowful time.
So Sincerely, Bonnie

I am very sorry for your loss . Losing a loved one in death is such a difficult thing to experience . Please be comforted by the promises in the Bible . Jesus tells us at John 5 : 28 , 29 that all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out . What a loving provision put in place by the God of all comfort so we can have the assured hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again one day . Meanwhile as I pray for that day to come I ask Jehovah God to bless your family and give each of you the strength to endure this most trying time . For more Bible promises please visit jw.org .
