My heart aches for the Cohen family to lose Jonathan recently in death after just 43 way too short years, way too young, way too soon. When death robs us of someone we love very much, it causes much sadness and grief. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you a beautiful scripture where Jesus makes us a wonderful promise at John 5:28, which says: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." . Our heavenly father promises us to do away with man's worst enemy, death at Rev. 21: 4 which reads: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick," ever again. The Bible also enlightens us at Hebrews 2:14 "so that through his (Jesus) death, he (Jesus) might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil." For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. John 6:40 Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago." Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. I offer my sincere condolences to the family. Feel free to contact me at my email address: myranj@centurytel.net May these promises give you hope, comfort and peace in your time of grief.

"How the mighty have fallen in the midst of battle! O Jonathan you were slain in your high places. I grieve for you my brother Jonathan; very dear have you been to me; your love was wonderful." Samuel II 1:26

Ben Cohen, Tarpon Springs, FL

I wrote the following poem a few years ago after one of our neighbors in Warwick succumbed. I offer it in both the spirit of remembrance and of going forward. All our condolences, Liz & Bill Conelly THE NEWLY DEAD Stories say the newly dead return, to savor momentarily the lands and people they must leave, their breath no more than failing breeze, their body heat a sun's ray poured through streams of shadow leaves. Blesséd River of Forgetfulness, your sweep removes the rasp edge of desire, slips vision from its mortal boundary, and soothes the human plight: this change of blood for water, down streaming passages of night. Grief is innocence, observing shadows westering from fields, and friends, as riven strains of music play. Time is not kept. Some final pliancy, at heart, conveys the soul we were, or are, or will yet be. William Conelly

To Sylvia, Phacelia & Ravine - our thoughts and hearts are with each of you during this difficult time and beyond.
