To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful and Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) knows the pain and hurt that you now have at this most difficult time. HE promises that those "powerless in death" will live again В (Isaiah 26:19). This is what the Bible calls the resurrection. Jesus promised that there's going to be a resurrection of all those in the grave and they will hear his voice and come out. John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15 What a wonderful time that will be when we will see our loved ones again right here on the earth! To learn more about God's promises and the resurrection hope, please visit I hope you will find some comfort in the hope of the resurrection found in the scriptures.В

I miss you terribly already.В  But, I know that you had to go.В  I have comfort and peace knowing that you are sitting at the feet of Jesus.В  You are likely rocking Jacqueline and singing her sweet songs of love.В  Jack and your parents are there, too, happy with your reunion.В  What joy you must have seeing all the babies that you have been missing as well as Pete and loving friends, like Lorraine, Harvey, and Little Bit.В 
You were a good Mom.В  You were a great example of how we should love unconditionally -- you did that so well.В  I also learned how to push through difficult times after watching that demonstrated by you over and over again.В  You are on the other side of the rainbow that we seen at Niagara Falls.В  I will think of you each time I see a rainbow, knowing that you are on the other side.В  I love you Momma and I miss you.В  Thank you for all that you gave.

My deepest condolences to the Peters' family and friends. The resurrection of Lazarus is just 1 of 9 miracles of this kind recorded in God's Word. John 5:28,29.

Didn't get to know Great Aunt Beth that well, but did meet her over the holidays when I flew down to Alabama in 1997.В В  It snowed for Christmas,В  of course since i flew in from Iowa, I got the blame in a joking way.В  My Grandma Evelyn was one of Beth's sisters,В  and its hard for her as well.В  thoughts to all the rest of the extended family.В В

What a touching tribute. Thank you, Becky, for the kind words. Momma was not a well schooled woman, but she was an excellent teacher and a compassionate giver.

My family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how very special Beth was to you; she was special to me as well. Though I rarely saw her growing up, she made sure to be part our lives, my mother Doris’s younger sister, only a year apart in age. I remember visiting her and making divinity and shelling pecans until our fingers were black; her laughing and telling my mom she might just want to keep me. In 1999, when my mom was dying from cancer, Beth was a constant source of support and encouragement. My mom could be honest with her, instead of putting on a brave face, and I know it helped her. In the six months we spent camped at the hospital, very few days went by that didn’t include a card or letter, or a phone call. Often there would be a five dollar bill, and an admonishment to be sure I was eating. When my mom became too sick to talk, Aunt Beth continued to write and to call and listen to me cry and pray. At 24, most of my friends were too busy to talk and too young to understand how much pain our days were filled with. What a relief her calming voice on the other end of the line was for me. She would regularly tell me that she wished she could do more, but the sacrifices she made for us really touched me. It was an important lesson in love and empathy and it made me a better person. I guess at the end of my life, I hope that someone can honestly say the same about me. Shortly before my mom died, Aunt Beth sent me a tea set that she had found at a flea market, it was unexpected and has a prominent place in my house. My youngest daughter is named Emma in her honor, and someday I will pass it along to her. I loved her so.В

Dear Peters family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Emma. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. (Please read) May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35) and it pains our creator, too. Our loving Heavenly Father did not purpose his human family to die but purpose us to live and enjoy life. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing”; Isaiah 25:8). He promised to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Hosea 13:14 “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; from death I will recover them.” He will then “satisfy the desire of every living thing” (Psalms 145:16). What a delight it will be to see them again to enjoy life as our Creator purposed! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.
