I like to express my condolences to the family of Richard Wendahl. Words cannot express the way you may be feeling at this time of grievance, but I like to share what help me when I loss my mom. There was a scripture in Revelation 21: 4, it reads 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." What a wonderful time that will be, to be able to embrace your loved ones again. For more information about the resurrection hope, please go to jw.org.

Sincerely,
Juanita R.
