To the family of Ethel Jivers As you know as well as many more of us know, God has added one more Angel in His Heaven. With heavy hearts we know that this Angel Is now at peace and resting with no more pain or sorrows. We also know that she is walking around Heaven with no assistance with her beautiful smile placed upon her face. I share your sorrow and pain today. Your mom was a lovely person and fought a good battle. We will all miss her. May God give you all the peace and comfort you need at this time.

Please accept my condolences during this time of distress. While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Ethel, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will continue to reflect on her seemingly small, yet precious memories. This is occurs especially when we experience the loss of someone loved. However, take confidence in knowing that just as you have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God can and will restore perfect life to those in His memory as explained in the faith strengthening video link below** vimeo.com/203513162

I am sorry for the family's loss. The passing of someone you love can be a very hard thing to cope with. Perhaps you can find some solace in the resurrection hope mentioned in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 : He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” My deepest sympathy to you all.
Posted on: 2017-06-13 13:31:27
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Ethel. Ms Ethel as we refer to her at our Senior Citizen gatherings. Such as strong, pleasant and giving individual. I will truly miss her getting a hug from her whenever we saw each other. Rest in peace Ethel and may God's presence bring peace and comfort to your family.

My condolences in the loss of your loved one. I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The pain of grief we feel when our loved ones die can sometimes be unbearable. The comforting words from our heavenly father Jehovah found at Isaiah 25:8; He (God) will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces, and Psalm 34:18; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit, will help you to cope with the grief and sadness now and in the days ahead.

You have our deepest sympathy and condolences in the loss of your loved one. Jehovah God made a promise to us all at Revelation 21:3-4 states, 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. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death

The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are people who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. Our prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time of grief.
