Condolences

You and your family remain in our prayers. May you always be in His Care. Janette Roulston and Staff of Hospice In His Care
- Janette Roulston
I'm so very sorry for your loss. But may the words of Jesus Christ be able to warm your hearts with the words he had spoken in John 5:28,29 that may come as a surprise, but he is here giving us all, including Mr. Bankston back to life again, by means of a resurrection, he will perform in the future when the time is right. But ot doesnt stop there. You see another promise made by his and ours Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, has made a promise that isan extension of what Jesus Christ has promised and that can be found in Psalm 37:29 which says:The righteous will posssess the earth and they will live forever on it. So when he is raised up to being alive again, he will be raised up to live here on this earth and in paradise, forever. And so may these words bring a real sense of comfort to your hearts and allow your minds to see your selves welcoming him back with open and loving arms to hold and cherish, forever. And for more comforting words of hope, then go to JW.org where you will find the peace that surpasses all understanding that Jesus Christ will give to you in these trying times ahead.
