Please allow me to offer my condolences to the, Guthrie family, by sharing a Scriptural hope. "With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he 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 have passed away.” And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says: “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” - Rev. 21:3-5. This is the hope of the resurrection. I am very sorry for your loss. May God's Word comfort the, Guthrie family and all those who loved her. Sincerely, Meryl, jw.org - healingwordsforu@gmail.com
