Martha was such a great Christian and such an inspiration to all who knew her. She was very special to me! The family is in my thoughts and my prayers. May God give you peace and comfort in the days ahead. She fought a good fight!

I am so very sorry for your loss. At such a painful time, I hope that it is comforting to know that our Creator, Jehovah God, understands our grief. More than that, he longs to use his almighty power to restore life to our loved ones. Notice the hope conveyed in the words at Job 14:15: "You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." We are the work of God's hands and the Creator who was responsible for our life can certainly restore us to life after death. May these thoughts along with your warm memories give you comfort during this difficult time.
