Dear family and friends of Byron:
Yes, it has been almost a year since Byron died on December 25, 2018. Even so, I know Byron is still loved and will never be forgotten. The passing of time eases the burning pain of loss, and, … making it through the day, does get easier. Still, the loss hurts, especially when anniversaries come up.

May I tell you about a future day coming soon when ... all those sleeping, Resting In Peace, will be resurrected to a peaceful, happy life here on a transformed, paradise Earth?

You can welcome back Byron, with hugs and kisses, and your hurt and pain regarding this loss can be replaced with indescribable happiness and tears of joy when he is resurrected! Then the scripture at Isaiah 65:17B can be fulfilled for you: "For look, ... the former (painful) things will not be called to mind neither will they come up into the heart." None of the hurts, sorrows or disappointments of life in this system of things will bother us then. Until that day, may you find comfort from the sure promises in the Bible.

Kind regards,
Harolyne GRANT

My condolences to you all for the loss of your loved one Byron.
May these scriptures bring you all a measure of comfort and hope
during this difficult time.

Revelation 21: 3, 4
With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 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.

Dear Family and Friends of Byron:

I was saddened to learn of the death of Byron on December 25, 2018. It is sad to lose a loved one in death at any age, but at just 56 years of age, death is nothing short of tragic. Please accept my deepest sympathy at your loss.

May I share with you some promises in the Bible that bring comfort at this time of loss?

First, it was never our Creator's purpose that anyone should die, ever! When He put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, they had the prospect of endless life, in ageless bodies, in perfect health, on a perfect Earth (Genesis 1:28). Adam and Eve could have passed that life on to us, but they sinned and lost everything for themselves ... and us. (Romans 5:12)

It is a comfort and softens our feelings toward our Creator, Jehovah God, to learn that it is Satan who causes imperfection, aging, sicknesses like cancer, and death -- not God (Hebrews 2:14).

The death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, are our guarantees that this Earth will yet be a PEACEFUL, global paradise. One day Byron will be resurrected to enjoy it, and so will countless others. Remember Jesus' words at John 5:28-29a and John 11:25: "I am the resurrection and the life," and "all those in the memorial tombs ... will be resurrected." Until then Byron, sleep, Rest In Peace.

May you have comfort and peace from these promises until the day when you can be reunited with a young (Job 33:24-25) and totally healthy (Isaiah 33:24) Byron!

With deepest sympathy and genuine respect,
Harolyne Grant
