Becky, I am so sorry to hear that your mom has passed away. I can only imagine the pain you and your family are going through right now. Those of us who have lost loved ones in death can certainly sympathize with how you’re feeling. I hope that you can find some peace and comfort through prayer. Remember, “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) While we cannot completely wipe away our tears from grief right now, we can have confidence in our hope of the resurrection when we will see your mom again in perfect health. So, hang in there, “As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) May Jehovah be with you and your family during these difficult times.

Your friend,
Kathy Adams

Dear Janet's family,

Honestly, I want to thanks God because I had her friendship even through Internet.
I remember when I began to learn english (still learning... ehehehe) and her kind way and always patient with me conquered me.
I ever told to her that I would go to US someday and would visit her and her family.
Sometimes I've opened my heart and like an angel she always had wisdom words to comfort me, to say: "Hey kid! You have the capacity to do ANYTHING! I'M SO PROUD OF YOU AND YOUR EFFORT!" Words that I'll never be able to forget.
Quick friendship, but, eternal love for her. A woman that I learnt to appreciate as friend, woman and "mother".
I'm very thankfull to God because I met her and believe me... She changed my life and helped me to be a better human being.
I'll pray forever to her and all you Janet's relatives.
A sincere hug with my whole love and faith.
May God comfort your hearts.
Stay with God, Sue! I love you forever my friend!
Gustavo (Belo Horizonte - Brazil)
