My mentor and friend. Memories are funny things - as much as the help and inspiration you gave me, I also remember you trusting me to baby sit for you--was that "Candy" - you also succeeded in getting me to stop biting my fingernails! Lovely, delightful woman--I wish I'd stayed under your 'wing' - my loss that I didn't. Who knows what 'might have been'.

I am so sorry to read about Libby's passing. I just started thinking about her a few days ago and decided to look her up only to read this. She was so special, and unique. I have never in my life met anyone like her. No one has ever come close. But what I remember most about Libby was the advice that she gave me long ago. "Never do anything you don't want printed in a newspaper." Wise words from a wise woman that took me in when I needed guidance. I miss her and wish that I had continued our friendship through the years. It was my loss that I didn't.

I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part, that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.

With Deep Sympathy.

Dear Young family,
I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you solace.

Please accept my sympathy to the Family of Ms. Stone.
I live Ms. Stone’ teachings every day – when I sit, stand or put on a wrap; when I meet new people and make sure to make eye contact and extend a firm handshake; when I have the opportunity to offer courtesy. Ms. Stone was my modeling teacher and friend. We were taught a correct way of mannerisms, not to use to act superior to others, but to act in a gracious attitude showing respect for others. Following completion of my course, I worked for her. She had great energy and ambition for herself and her students. She was courageous in trying new undertakings. She was beauty-queen beautiful with gorgeous eyes and skin. Her teachings will live on through the lives of all who benefited from her influence and honor her memory. I am remembering her with love and gratitude and great respect.

I am very sorry for the recent loss of your dear loved one, Mrs. Libby . I have a brief encouraging message I would like to share with you from the Bible. The Bible can be a great source of both comfort and hope during this most difficult time in your lives. For an example, at Revelation 21:3-5 it assures us that the day is soon coming when our most loving Heavenly Father is going to wipe away the tears of sorrow from our eyes and that even pain and death will be no more. I hope after reading this it will be of some comfort to each one of you. If later you would like to learn more from the Bible about why we die or why does a loving God allow so much suffering and injustice, please feel free to go to the website: www.jw.org to find satisfying answers.
