Leave Condolences

I want to offer my condolences to the Cook family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Our loving Father, Jehovah, informed us that death is an enemy(1 Corinthians 15:26). He knows your pain and has promised to get rid of this enemy. He also promised to awaken our love ones from sleep in death. Notice how this is beautifully expressed at Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” Exquisite joy it will be to see our love ones again and enjoy their company forever! I hope these words give you all comfort.

I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort described in 2 Corinthians 1;3,4 provide comfort for your family. Losing a loved one in death is never easy, but the Bible reassures in Isaiah 25:8 that soon death will be no more. What a wonderful time that will be for all of us.

Aunt Mary Dee, One of my favorite memories of coming to your house when I was a kid was how excited I was to always get to see that goose you had! I thought that was the neatest thing to have a goose for a pet! Also hog killing day was another favorite! All that good food we got to eat!! May you Rest In Peace & know that you will be missed by many. Sincerely, Amy Lee
