    My heart goes out to the family, but just remember God is there in your time of need. She will be miss.


    Condolences, with deepest sympathy to the family of Shirley Bowden. I did not personally know Ms. Bowden, but I do know the pain of losing a loved one in death. I also know that the creator of life, Jehovah God, never purposed for humans to die. In fact, his purpose was for humans to live forever in a paradise earth (Genesis 2:15-17). His purpose has not changed. God hates death and calls it an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26). He has promised a time when there will be no more mourning and no more death (Revelation 21:4). He has also made provisions for us to see our dead loved ones again through the resurrection hope - for he promises "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15). Since he is the God who "cannot lie" (Titus 1:2), we can be assured of his promises. Many are the promises of God. You may find the answers to questions such as "why do we die?" "where are the dead?" "will suffering ever end?" etc., at www.jw.org. May the God of comfort provide your family a measure of comfort during this time of your loss (2 Corinthians 1:3,4).
