To the Robinson and West family of Mrs. Izola, I would like to express by condolences to you on your loss.  Losing a loved one in death is never easy, but we can find comfort in the God who comfort us in our time of need. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)  Also, the Bible helps us to see that there is a real hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones. (John 5:28,29) Jehovah God hates death and he views it as an enemy and that's why he promises to do away with it forever. (Isaiah 25:8)
