  1. To the family of Liz,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know the memories you have of your dear Lizzie will stay close to your heart. Death at any age is so hard to bear let alone at such a young age with so much ahead to look forward to. The Bible promises there will be a time when sickness and death will be done away with, (Rev. 21:3,4). There are so many promises in the Bible including the assurance that God will resurrect those who have fallen asleep in death to be reunited here on earth in a peaceful world to live forever, (Ps 37:10,11 & 29). If you want to read encouraging scriptures and see comforting videos online go to jw.org. There are many educational and upbuilding bible based things you may enjoy. I am wishing for you peace and comfort during this very difficult time. Warmly, ACR

    My deepest sympathies are with you and your family.Surely, no words can describe the pain of losing a loved one in death. Rest assured though, that the Bible promises at John 5vs.28and29 a sure resurrection for all those we have lost. Also of comfort are 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 and Isaiah 26:19

    Bobby & Family,
    My heart goes out to you and the kids. I am devastated by the death of Elizabeth (as I always called her), my niece. She was such a large part of my family when she was young. My son, Skip and Elizabeth grew up together and were glued at the hip for years. I loved watching her grow up to be the beautiful, warm, caring woman and mother she was. Missing her is an understatement.

    Love always,
    Auntie Heidi (Karrer Schwarz)
