My prayers and thoughts are with the family and friends during the loss of your precious loved one. Beth was a dear friend to me and a wonderful lady. She was a great nurse as well, spoiling the doctors especially Dr Barannco and Dr Strelka. She treated her staff, friends,all the patients and families with respect, dignity, and love. She had many stories to tell of the rides from FLoyd to Montgomery Regional Hospital with Gail and Evei all with laughter and fun. Father Mac and Betty was always there with us to share in the fun that Beth created about her rides with Evei in the volkswagon. Beth we will miss your smile and laugh. Rest in peace lovely lady and we will see you again in your heavenly home. Your friend -Hilda

My greatest sympathy to the close friends and family. I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses and I always like to share some words of comfort and hope. Most people who have died will be resurrected. Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will…come out.” (John 5:28, 29) In harmony with God’s original purpose, those resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth. (Luke 23:43) This promised future includes perfect health and everlasting life for obedient humans. The Bible says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”—Psalm 37:29. The Bible promises: “[God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things [including today’s injustices and sufferings] have passed away.”—Revelation 21:3, 4. What a loving creator to let us know of such wonderful promises for the future and to let us know how much he truly cares. I hope these words are of comfort and hope. Your neighbor Teresa.
