  1. To the Family of Elizabeth G. Watson, My family and I are very sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. Although you don’t know us personally, we certainly understand that the loss of a loved one can take its toll on your mental, physical, emotional, and most importantly, your spiritual health. The words of comfort found in the Bible can help us to cope with the loss of a dear one. There is one scripture that stands to give us hope. In the Bible book of John, chapter 5 and verse 28, Jesus said, ‘Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear my voice and come out.’ This hope has allowed millions of families, including my own, to cope with the feelings of sadness and even guilt that one may struggle with after losing a loved one in death. Please feel free to email me if you’d like to receive comforting Bible based literature. Sincerely, Autumn Prince
