I would like to offer my sincerest condolences during this difficult time, the loss of a loved one can is a very painful experience. I hope you can find a measure of comfort in God's Word the Bible. For example, Revelation 21:4 tells of a coming time when death on earth will be no more! And in John 5:28,29 says that all those in the memorial tomb will come out! So, we will have the opportunity to see our loved ones again! For more information about this topic and much more please visit JW. org.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Shirley's family. Shirley was a treasured friend of my late Aunt Barbara Kane. They worked many many years together at SNET "The Phone Company" in Waterbury, CT. That is where I first meant Shirley , as I was a telephone operator during summers' while in college. My Aunt Barbara always cherished the moments the two spent together. Shirley was a very kind and thoughtful friend to her. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. May she rest in peace.
