I was so sorry to read of Rita's passing in the newspaper. Rita was my neighbor and playmate when we lived on Houston Street. But I loved all the Briseno family. Great people, wonderful neighbors. The Lord be with you all. May he dry your tears and mend your broken hearts. Most sincerely, Veronica Casillas Castillon

Reciban nuestras condolencias. En Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que “Dios limpiará toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya más lamento ni clamor ni dolor”. Hechos 24:15 habla de “una Resurrección”. Jehova Dios muy pronto acabará con toda la maldad y el sufrimiento, además nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
