To the family of Ms. Mary Ruth Collins: I am sorry for your loss. Yes we are broken when death separates us from our love one's. Please be assured that Jehovah God see's your pain and sadness. He promised that He would eliminate the enemy that causes sickness and death. Revelation 21:4. According to Ecclesiastes 9:5 He refers to death as a deep sleep awaiting the time when He says wake up to a paradise earth John 5: 28-29 Psalms 37:29. May you find comfort in knowing your loved one is resting safely in Jehovah God's limitless memory.
