We are being pursued by an enemy called death. None of us can outrun it or fight it off. But Jehovah is far more powerful than death. He is the loving Rescuer who has already shown that he can defeat this enemy. And he promises to destroy this enemy, death, once and for all. The Bible teaches: "The last enemy death, is to be brought to nothing." [1 Corinthians 15:26] That is good news!

Betti, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I can only imagine how hard it is to lose your life companion. May God grant you His peace, comfort and love to live out the rest of your days until you are reunited with your beloved. When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing it will be. When we all see Jesus, we'll sing and shout the victory.

Betti & Robin and Family, So sorry to hear of your big loss. I remember the great times we had celebrating all our birthdays together a few years ago (surprising you and Junius) with the Bloody Caesars and BPR! It was so much fun getting to know you and spending time with you. Sending big hugs and my deepest sympathies. Patti & Sheena
