I'm so sorry to hear of Mrs. Ruth's passing. I have many fond memories of her at FBC Jackson and Odom's Grocery Store where she often shopped. She was a very sweet Christian lady! Gob Bless!

I'm so sorry for your loss of your beloved Ruth. Comfort can be found in the loving promise from our Heavenly Father Jehovah that we can see our loved ones again right here on earth at John 5:28,29.

To the family of Ruth Dear: Imagine the time when there will be no more old age and Ruth will be young and vibrant as she once was. (Job 33:25) Imagine a time when there will be no more death and all those in the grave will be resurrected. (Isaiah 25:8;
Acts 24:15) Very soon we won't have to use our imagination because these things will be a reality. We can put our faith and trust in God's word because we know that "God cannot lie." (Titus 1:2)
