Dear Augustine Family,
This is such a painful time for you. Losing someone as dear as Eleanor has been to you is so difficult. She filled you as well as many others with such love and her sweet presence will certainly be missed. As you cherish your precious memories memories of her please reflect on the words of Jesus at John 5:28,29. In this passage we are assured of the resurrection. At that wonderful time our tears of grief will be transformed into tears of joy. This promise was made possible by our loving Heavenly Father Jehovah through the sacrifice of his dear son Jesus Christ (John 3:16). May this sure hope bring you a measure of comfort at this challenging time.
