My sympathy to Mrs. Staten's loved ones. May you find comfort and strength in this promise from the Scriptures that express how much our Heavenly Father cares, and the loving support that he wants to give. " Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalms 34:18
{} Please keep these words in your heart when you think of your dear Grandma.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found comfort in the pages of God's word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). In God's word we find the promise that we can be reunited with our loved ones (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15). The Bible tells us where this happy reunion will take place (Psalm 37: 11, 29; Matthew 5:5). We are told why we die (Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 5:12), and that Jehovah, the God of the Bible, will end death forever (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3,4). For more information please visit the website
