The lose of a loved one is a time of sadness. I have found comfort in these verses from the bible.
2 Corinthians 1:3,4"Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God."
May these verses bring you and your family comfort.
My sincerest condolences,Crysta Rene

I want to offer my condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Ella. I am a former caregiver of hers and I must say that she was one awesome lady. She was a lady who loved her independence. She was adamant and stubborn when it came to needing help from someone but when she finally gained trust in me and realized that I was there to help her and not hinder her that's when she gave in for my assistance. She was a strong minded woman but a woman of many talents. I have thanked her so much for her past service to our country over the years because it took a strong intelligent woman to go through so much as she told me about. We used to sit and talk about all of her travels near and far and compare all our books and movies that we have read and seen. She loved sharing her photo albums with me and the many memories behind them. I will really miss her smile and laugh and especially that glow in her dog Cookies eyes when Ms. Ella walked into a room but I'm so happy that Ms. Ella found her peace above where there is no more pain, illness, or suffering and to all she left behind: You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she's gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back or you can do what she would want: Smile, open your eyes, love and go on. God bless you all on your healing journey-Sonya Silver.

I want to send my deepest sympathy to the family of Mrs. Ella G. Arrington.
The bible tells us we can gain comfort from God, even during times of sorrow. We pray to our heavenly father for help to cope with the sorrow felt from the death of a loved one.
By prayer and supplication, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6
The bible also promises that God “will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” (Revelation 21:4) How comforting and reassuring that is!
May you find comfort by relying on our heavenly father and learning more about the blessings of God's kingdom. If you would like to learn more about God’s purpose for mankind and the earth, please visit jw.org.

The Creator of the heavens and the earth has promised death will be no more. (Rev 21:4) Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My condolences are with you and family as you grieve. May the God of all comfort brings you comfort and strengthens you from the scriptures as you endure the loss of your loved one. God promises that he will resurrect millions of people who have died. "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." (2 Cor 1:3-4; Heb 2:15; John 5:28-29) For additional information please visit http://bit.ly/1K38EFt.
