My deepest condolences to the family of Deborah Morris, I'm so sorry for your loss although I don't know Debbie in person I do understand the pain, the grief and the feeling of helplessness that you are experiencing at this time, but the Bible offers comfort and hope to all of us who have loss loved ones in death. Throughout the pages of the Bible it gives Gods promise to restore this earth back to a paradise, and the Bible also assures us that God hates death he viewed it as an enemy 1 Corinthians 15:26 he said he has a yearning to conquer death by means of the resurrection, God has resurrected humans in the pass and he is eager to do it again, he longs to bring back all those who have fallen asleep in death and are in his memory and to see them live again. The Bible offers us much hope because Isaiah 33:24 said and no resident will say "I'm sick" we all can expect this to be a reality in the near future both you and I seeing those missing from our lives due to sickness that lead to death, so please take comfort in what is mentioned in the Bible Deborah has the hope of receiving a resurrection when that time comes you will never have to worry about having to loose her again to death as our loving Heavenly Father assured us to conquer death forever by means of the resurrection. May the God of all comfort be with you and give you the strength you need in this most difficult time .

Dear loving family & friends of Debbie,
I'm very sorry for the loss of your beloved Deborah. Although I don't know you, and I didn't know your dear Debbie, I want to offer my deepest sympathy for you and your family in your severe loss.
I want to share with you what continues to bring me comfort in very painful losses of my own, in the hope that you will find an added measure of comfort too. Both my beloved parents and my beloved youngest brother died in the past little over 2 1/2 years. My dear brother died suddenly and very unexpectedly a little over ten months ago at age 51.
I think about the fact that they're not suffering, and that means a lot to me! And I look forward intently to the time when the time for the resurrection is here, at which time I hope to be here to welcome them each back to life with a close and loving hug.
Acts 24:15 promises "that there is going to be a resurrection." Ecclesiastes 9:11b tells why many die, it's due to "time and unexpected events (Or, "unforeseen occurrence") overtake them all."
Our loving God doesn't cause sad things to happen to our loved ones. James 1:13 helps us to understand this. There it reads, 'When under trial, let no one say: "I am being tried by God." For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone'"
2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 calls God, "the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." Isaiah 65:17b tells us that "the former things will not be called to mind, nor will they come up into the heart." - So when Jehovah God resurrects our loved ones back to life; then the overwhelming sadness that we experience now will be forgotten, when we're once more reunited with our loved ones that we miss so much now!
Revelation 21:4 gives us this wonderful promise, "And (God) 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." - Just imagine a world with no tears of sadness, no pain and no death!
Psalms 37:10, 11, 29 tell of the hope for many upon their resurrection, to be welcomed back to life by their loved ones and then to live here on the earth when it's restored to Paradise conditions; then no wicked, the meek will find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace to live forever upon the earth! To live the way our Creator meant for us to live, then even the animals will be safe and peaceful as Isaiah 11:6-9 says. No more sickness - Isaiah 33:24 No more tragedies to separate loved family members from each other!
Older ones will grow young again as Job 33:25 says, "Let his (her) flesh become fresher (Or, "healthier) than in youth. Let him (her) return to the days of his (her) youthful vigor."
I hope that you will be able to find comfort by looking at pictures of happy times spent making memories together. Romans 15:4 "For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope."
Please look at www.jw.org for more comfort.
Take care, and I truly hope that you will find some comfort.
