We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a loved one isn't easy. Our loving God invites us at 1 Peter 5:7 " to throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." May God give you courage and strength to sustain you in the days ahead. At John 5:28,29 Jesus spoke about a resurrection for our loved ones. These verses helped me to cope with the death of my brother and father may it do the same for you and your family.

I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the Forbes family during this most difficult time of losing your loved one. May you find comfort in the promise of our Heavenly Fathe: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." 1 Corinthians 15:26. Tears of sorrow will be replaced with tears of joy. Until then Mau you continue to draw comfort and strength from Jehovah, family and friends.

Betty was a wonderful person who I have known all my life. She was so giving and caring to others. We used to get tickled at how she liked to gamble. Lindbergh, Betty's husband was my Dad's favorite nephew .
We loo forward to seeing her again in heaven.
