I am very saddened to hear of Amara’s passing .I remember the good times we had at the hall togather and I remember her as a little girl. Darren I also remember you and your mom Jean. So please remember That 2 Corinthians 1:2-4 Tells us that Jehovah is the God of all comfort who comforts you in your time of need. Also remember that wonderful hope that Jehovah holds out to you at John 5:28,29 Where Jesus says there is going to be a resurrection . What a blessing for your family and mine. Please give my love and condolences to all the kids. Sorry I could not be there but all of you are in my prayers. Your Sister Jean Harry in Phoenix Az.
