I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear Deborah. I hope that you will find comfort in the words of Jesus at John 5:28,29 where he promised that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect back to life those in the grave. Until then, it is just like they are sleeping. (John 11:11-13) May your family draw strength from Jehovah, the God of all Comfort.

Heaven has received another angel to sing in its choir right beside her parents, brother and her son. And now getting to hold one of her great grandson. She will be deeply missed but we will see her again.

I grew up with Deborah and spent many childhood hours with her. We attended church together and were baptized together. Although I lost touch with her, I treasure my memories of our youth. I know that Heaven gained an angel. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God bless and comfort you.
