To the family and friends of Gerri,
I am very sorry for your loss.
Gerri’s long life surely gives testimony to the Bible’s promise of life that should not end.
I would like to share this hope that has kept me at peace since my dad passed.
Learning that the God of the Bible promises relief from the pain of death and a fix for those who have already succumbed,
keeps my heart and mind open and renewed to what will come.
May you find comfort in the Bible’s hope that one day we will see our lost loved ones again.
Jesus showed how this promise is sure when he resurrected Lazarus. John 11:1-44.
Such bible truths provide us with hope and comfort as we look forward to the day when death will no longer be and those who have already succumbed to this enemy will be awakened to a life free of sickness, pain, sorrow and the worries of ever dying again.
Genesis 2:7, 8, 15; Revelation 21:3, 4; John 6:40; 1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 🙏🏿
Like me you can learn more about these wonderful bible promises at jw.org.
