To family and friends of Beulah.Out of all the trials that we must bare, this is the hardest. The loss of a loved one, a mother. At times like this, it really helps us to think about our Great God Jehovah. Try to imagine the pain He must have felt when He looked down from heaven and saw His only begotten, dying on the torture stake. We don’t know the degree of His pain, but we know that it hurt Him deeply. Because of this we know that He understands how you feel. And He alone can say: “ I know what you are going thru.” So may Jehovah’s Spirit continue to be with the family, and you will get thru this.

My deepest sympathy is with the Lawson family. May the God of All Comfort ( Psalm 83:18) and the love of family and friends sustain you during this time of grief and sorrow.( Revelation 21:4 ) tells us God promise to will wipe out every tears from their eyes. And death will be no more, neither will mourning , nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. May this wonderful hope strengthen the family during this difficult time.
