The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.

Friends and even strangers can provide encouraging and faith-strengthening words. Especially at a time of sorrow such is appreciated. My words of encouragement echo the thoughts of the Giver of life. At Isaiah 25:8, He states; "HE(GOD) will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe way the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." May the hope of the resurrection help your family in coping with your loss.

One of the most caring, loving ladies I have ever known. she was a strong advocate for the children of Cumberland County. She was a good friend who had a great sense of humor. She will be missed.

A great lady who made the world a better place in her care of abused children. I really liked her and loved working with her. She was a fine Christian lady who had her priorities in the right place. My deepest sympathies.

My deep condolences to the Schulenberg/Phipps family:
Although, we have never met I have lost loved ones to the pain of death. And I would like to share what helped me during those most difficult times.
It wasn't just being around family & friends. But the hope & encouragement you get from the gift that the Most High God gave to each & everyone of us, yes that is His written word the Bible (Psalms 83:18 & 2Timothy 3:16). Please, notice how God's precious son Jesus viewed death in such a gentle way. At John 11:11-14 yes he viewed death as one sleeping. And God gives us the assurance that there will be a resurrection of loved ones from the sting of death (John 5:28, 29). And He even says where they are are & where they will be (Daniel 12:2 & Psalms 37:11). May you look forward to God's promises being fulfilled (Titus 1:2).
I hope these few Scriptures were of some comfort. Please feel free to contact me or visit jw.org for more words of encouragement. Our daughter fell asleep in death and recently my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death also. I truly understand.
With deep sympathy,
