My condolences to the family and friends. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3, 4. With our pain and suffering a thing of the past, we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we lost to death. I hope you find a measure of comfort and hope in these promises.

I am so sorry about Dawn. I knew her from my son Jeb and his family, her neighbors. She was such a kind person.

Heartfelt Condolence to the Family of Dawn Poss,
There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death. It is obvious from the many kind expressions that Mrs. Poss will be sadly missed. I find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed.
The grief and sorrow we experience is temporary. (Revelation 21:4). God’s word is clear, “Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust!.....And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life”. (Isaiah 26:19) The restoration of life is guaranteed because of Jehovah God’s purpose and great love for mankind!
Jesus not only spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he himself was resurrected by his Father and performed many miracles including resurrections. All such miraculous events took place on earth giving us a precious glimpse of what is to come.......seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Poss, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family at this difficult time and in the days ahead......

Our deepest sympathy to the family. When someone we love dies it causes Pain and sorrow. Though we personally have never seen anyone raised from the dead, we have certain Scriptures that assure us of the resurrection. Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29). We can also, comforted by the hope expressed by the upright man Job: He will call; The dead will answer (Job 14:13-15). To know that there is a better future awaiting those we have lost in death, where the issues, such as sickness and death that plague us today, will be things of the past is comforting. I hope these scriptures give you strength to endure the difficult days ahead.
