Charina lived a long and industrious life and is now resting awaiting for the words of Acts 24:15 to become reality. I am so sorry for your loss, my deepest sympathies to the family and friends. May you all find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will soon take away all the suffering, pain and death will be no more. He also promises a better future where we can see our loved ones again. (Revelation 21:4; John 5:28-29) I hold on tight to these promises because I have lost many to diseases and look forward to the day they no longer exist and we could all see our loved ones again!
