Celebrating the life of Huston Egbert Raynor
Thank you for signing Huston Egbert Raynor's Guestbook
My deep condolences go to the Raynor family on the loss of your precious loved one. Losing a loved one is never easy. The emotional pain & emptiness is so real. But, I would like to share what helped us when our daughter fell asleep in death and recently my beloved husband of 50 years.
It was indeed the gift that the Most High God gave to each & everyone of us. And that is His written Word the Bible. In it contains many many words of comfort. I would like to share what has and is helping me.
Please, notice God's son Jesus comforting view of death. At John 11:11-14 it brings out that Jesus viewed death as one sleeping. And not that one is here or there. I wondered will I see my loved ones again? And from the Scriptures the answer is "yes." Please, notice these few Scriptures: Isaiah 33:24(No more sickness) Revelation 21:4(No more pain, sorrow or death) John 5:28, 29(the Resurrection hope). And, it says where at Psalm 37:11 & Psalm 37:29 brings out how long that will last. As you ponder over these few Scriptures may it bring you some comfort knowing the Most High God will fulfill His promises(Psalm 83:18 & Titus 1:2).
Sent in deep sympathy,
Please, feel free to contact me or visit jw.org for more comforting words from God's gift to you.

Sending our prayers to the entire Raynor family during this time. Your dad was a good man that always had a smile on his face. He never met a stranger and always projected the love he felt for his family. He will be missed.
