My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Betty Jean (Young) Gordon. The God of all Comfort, Jehovah really gives us the help we need at all times (Isaiah 41:10). He has so many promises the He will fulfill for His people. (1 Corinthians 15:26) reminds us that there will be a time when God will get rid of death completely. What a great time to look forward to! If we rely on God for comfort, we will receive it!

I am so sorry I couldn't be there in person to express my sorrow for the loss of this wonderful woman. I referred to Betty as my "honorary Grandmother", she always loved me like one of her own, and I will miss her dearly. My sympathies go out to the family and many friends she had. May she rest in heavenly peace.
