What a wonderful life Jewel enjoyed! If there was ever a person named perfectly, it was Jewel. Our thoughts and prayers are with her precious family.
Aunt Jewel was always the sweetest aunt anyone could ever hope for. She was so special. I will forever remember the chocolate syrup and biscuits she made for us kids. Yum! Thanks Aunt Jewel. We all loved you. You are now our true angel.
I am so very sorry for your loss. At such a painful time, I hope that it is comforting to know that our Creator, Jehovah God, understands our grief. More than that, he longs to use his almighty power to restore life to our loved ones. Notice the hope conveyed in the words at Job 14:15: "You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." We are the work of God's hands and the Creator who was responsible for our life can certainly restore us to life after death. May these thoughts along with your warm memories give you comfort during this difficult time.
