Naomi's family, I was stunned to see that Naomi passed suddenly. I went to school with her when she attended in Three Rivers. I also know of her desire to care for people, as I lived down the street form her in Centreville. Folks over there never had a complaint to me, they were grateful. I and many others have found comfort in scriptures from the Bible. I'd like to share some with you. These are found in any Bible: Psalm 37:29 John 5:28,29 Acts 24:15 Isaiah 25:8 Isaiah 35:5,6 Revelation 21:4. I hope these can help ease things a little. I hadn't seen Naomi in a while, still, sad to hear about her. She touched so many lives. Very Sincerely, Cathy Taylor

Death of a loved one is very difficult to deal with. Jesus Christ gave us very encouraging words in this Scripture - “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”—John 5:28, 29. Very shortly God will remove all wickedness and establish a new world under heavenly rulership. Psalm 37:10, 11 “Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there. 11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.”. The result will be a paradise over the whole earth, inhabited by people who serve God. In the Bible we read: “I heard a loud voice from the throne say: ‘Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.’”—Revelation 21:3, 4. When you are able please go to jw.org for more encouraging information on the resurrection hope. I too extend my heartfelt sympathy.
