    My deepest sympathy for your loss. Praying that you are comforted in knowing that Betty is not suffering. Please know that God has promised to restore life to all those who are in his memory who are asleep in death when he fulfills his promise to end sickness, pain and sorrow forever, Acts 24:15, Isaiah 33:24, Psalms 37:11, 29, 34. May Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ keep you in their loving care.
