I am so sorry to learn of Donna`s passing. Although we didn`t see each other often thru the years, I was blessed to be able to call her my friend - and when we did see each other, she was always the same...a truly beautiful, open-hearted soul who brightened my days. I was lucky enough to see her recently and we hugged and laughed and shared bits of our lives, we told each other that we`d pray on the circumstance that brought us together. I will keep praying for her family, that you all find peace and joy in your minds and hearts, in that you were blessed with her in your lives and that she`s HOME. <3

My heart goes out to your family. I am so sorry that you are going through this difficult time. Psalms 46:1 says, God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress. And remember that God hates it when one of His children dies (Matthew 18:14, 1 Corinthians 15:26). So He makes Himself available in order to comfort us. In fact, 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 refers to Him as the "God of all comfort". Pray to Him for strength to get through this most difficult time. Weep to Him when the words just won't come out. He will really help you (Isaiah 41:10) because He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). And please, call upon His name found at Psalm 83:18. www.JW.org
