I\\'m sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. When someone we love dies, it’s natural to want to see that person again. Many have found comfort in the Bible’s promise of a resurrection. Notice what John 5:28, 29 says, \\"Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.\\"

God gives us such a meaningful hope to look forward to. And in the meantime he also promises us to comfort us in our trials if we go to him in prayer. 2 Cor 1:3 calls him the God of all comfort. I hope this was comforting to y\\'all. Please go to jw.org for more information. Have a nice day.

NEW BODIES! II Corinthians 5 \\"For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it\\'s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothes us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a GUARANTEE he has given us HIS HOLY SPIRIT. AMEN!!!

To the Woolfolk and Mickens Family,
So sorry to hear about the loss. Growing up on Jamestown Road, we all knew each other and everyone was family. She was like a aunt, so nice and soft spoken. I remember her as she is in the picture. My family and I will keep you all in prayer as you go through your period of bereavement. May God bless you all and give you strength to get through this trying time.

Dear Woolfolk Family

My prayers are with you at this time. Continue to find comfort in KNOWING that she is receiving her much deserved reward resting with our Savior.

She was First Lady at Bethany when Rev. Woolfolk baptized me and most of my siblings. Sharon, Cynthia, Ora, and Oliver, Jr. I remember those good days at Bethany, It was those times that provided me with my spiritual foundation. I thank your mother and father for being obedient to the Holy Spirit. May their legacy continue with every life we all touch.

Be more blessed

To the family of Ms. Jan L. Wool folk

““Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.””
