Justine and Jessica

We are totally shocked to see this news!! We can not imagine how this came about, as we had no news since she contacted us at the end of July. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time.

My deepest condolences. Verity had a very giving spirit and Jehovah loves those who are generous and merciful. He is also the God of all comfort and the Father of tender mercies and He will comfort you now more than ever before and best of all, He gives all His loyal worshippers the hope of seeing their loved ones in the near future never to part again. ( Isaiah 25:8; John 5:28,29; 11:25; Rev 21:1-5)
