Tasks left undone must stay that way,
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.

Thought for Joann Renberg (1935-2018)

  • To Joann’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I have found comfort in reading Job 14:14,15 where it shows that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort and strength as well, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever.
