My deepest sympathy for your loss. May our Heavenly Father Jehovah strengthen you with His promise to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) May His promises also comfort you during this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear about Kathy passing away. I don't know if any of you remember me.........Kathy and I ran around together in high school and after graduation. We were best friends. We kind of grew away from each other through the years, as we each went our own ways. But I have often thought of her with many warm happy memories. She was a very sweet person. I was recently thinking of contacting her.....I wish I hadn't waited so long. I do hope and pray you all find comfort in your love for her and her love for you. I am sure from time to time you will feel her presence near you. Take care and may God bless you all.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Kathleen's family. For right now, there's no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However, 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, "... power beyond what is normal ", to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry, or that we forget. It means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28 which says, "...all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". Jesus was referring to the resurrection. That is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us and keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. 2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as, "... the God of all comfort ". One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now, during this time of sorrow.
