To the Family of Mrs. Stith,
I did not know Mrs. Stith however, it is obvious from the lovely expressions that she will be greatly missed. Therefore, at times such as this reminders of God's promises regarding death and the resurrection serve to provide hope, a measure of peace and comfort. (Jeremiah 29:11)
It is comforting to know that death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. God’s word says 'death is an enemy' and promises it will be 'brought to nothing'. (1Corinthians 15:26) Psalm 34:18 says, "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." So, God does care about our pain and grief so much so that he guarantees the restoration of life.
Further, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life...” ( John 11:25) Jesus not only spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he himself was resurrected by his Father and performed many miracles including resurrections. So, all resurrections took place here on earth giving us assurance of what is to come.
God guarantees us that the grief and sorrow we experience is temporary. (Revelation 21:4) Because God is a promise keeper (Titus 1:2), we have the prospect of seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Stith, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family in the days to come.........
Betty may you RIH. We know that you are whole now and the earthly body has been left behind for your Glorious Heavenly body and wings. You will be missed by those left behind but all will be waiting for that Glorious reunion in the sky!! Prayers for comfort and healing for the family.

Grandma I’m going to miss you so bad I wish I had more time with you I love the times you told me about the past showing me pictures of all the family I will always have the memories when I was a child and staying the night with you and grandpa and going to the movies and all the Christmas, thanksgiving, and birthdays we all had together. I love you grandma to the moon and back
We believe that the concept of service is of enormous value to individuals, communities, and society in general.
