Condolence: My sincere condolences go out to the family of Mrs. Rudick. I know you will sorely miss such a wonderful presence in your family. One thing I gain comfort from, is the hope present in the bible that we can look forward to: “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) We also have the hope found in Luke 14:14, "For you will be repaid in the resurrection of the righteous ones." The resurrection this verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again on Earth. I know it will be a joyous time when you can reunite with Mrs. Rudick! I invite you to visit JW.ORG for more information on this comforting hope.
Condolence: A.J. and Amanda: I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I remember her when A.J. was in my third grade class. She was very interested in your education. I did know that your parents had moved to Mtn. View but did not ever see them in town in Mtn. View. Wish I could have visited with them there. May the Lord be with you all during this very difficult time.
