With sympathy to the Banister family for their loss of Patty. May the memories you cherish of her bring you comfort and strength. Also, may Jehovah God comfort you, as He is the source of all comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. Examining God’s Word, the Bible, teaches us that the dead are not suffering. Ecclesiastes 9:5. The Bible also says there’s going to be a resurrection. Acts 24:15. May these Scriptures bring you comfort.
