There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death; no doubt Mrs. Waldrup will be sadly missed by all who knew her. May you find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed! His words are clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4)
Further, Jesus guaranteed the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he performed resurrections and was himself resurrected by his Father. All resurrections took place on earth, giving us a glimpse of what is to come.... seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
Until his promises are fulfilled, may Jehovah God continue to bless & comfort you in the days ahead....
Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Mary Anne Waldrup. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Waldrup, reflect on the time when aging, sickness and death will be conditions of the past. (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15:26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19) May God’s word bring you comfort during this difficult time and in the days to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises.
