    Our heartfelt condolences to the family of Eve Durb. It is our prayer that God will bring much comfort to the family in the days ahead. Jehovah God has promised us a time when sickness and death will be no more.

    Rev. 21: 4 tells us: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

    May the family have comfort and peace during this time of great loss.
