  • My heart breaks thinking about your loss, Liz, Becky, Jamey and the rest of your family. I am SO sorry. Just remember that you can lean on a God whose love is bigger than any problem you have to deal with. Pull from that love and feel His arm around you every minute of the days ahead. God IS with you and will give you strength and peace. God bless…

  • Please accept my deepest sympathy for your family’s loss. I know you must be grief-stricken at the death of your loved one, Beth. She had so many years ahead-so much to live for. The Bible has proven to be the best source of encouragement for such a difficult time. At 1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 the Bible shows that the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. So, untimely death will not claim someone so young like your beloved, Beth. The Bible at
    John 5:28, 29 shows that God ‘yearns’ to reunite Beth with you by means of the resurrection, and lovingly has made provision to do so. I sincerely hope that these scriptures from the Bible will bring your family much comfort and hope, as you continue to treasure your wonderful memories of Beth.

  • Dear Liz and family;

    So sorry to read about the loss of your daughter! May God’s loving arms surround you and help you as you walk through this difficult time and the year that lies ahead.

    You are in my prayers.
