    My condolences to the Rogers family. I know this is a difficult time for the family and I pray God comforts and strengthens the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and fond memories of Nell comfort her family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Psalm 147:3 “He (GOD) heals the brokenhearted; he binds up their wounds.” May you all have peace of mind during this time.

  6. Maria

    I would like to express my condolences to you and your family. Losing a loving in death is hard to cope with but I found encouragement from the Bible at Acts 24:15 “There going to be a resurrection.” That a loving promise from Jehovah God we are going to see our dead love again. You can visit our website: JW.ORG for more scriptures comfort and view the video (Is There Hope for the Dead) I hope this bring you and your family comfort.
