It was a privilege and honor to know her! She was always kind gentle and showed that she cared about everybody. She made you feel welcome and made great pastries. She was a great wife and a beautiful mother to all her children. She will be greatly missed!!!!! Richard Ries.

To the family of Adeline McCarlson, I'm very sorry about the loss of your loved one. I wanted to share the scriptural hope that gave me so much comfort when I lost my mother. I hope it will help you also. The Bible shows that God did not intend for humans to suffer, grow old and die. (Romans 5:12). It also calls death an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26). God promises to remove death forever. (Isaiah 25:8). He also promises to soon restore the earth and humans to his original purpose for them. Then he will resurrect our loved ones onto a cleansed, paradise earth where we can welcome them back. (John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:10,11,29). Please visit jw.org to find satisfying answers from the Bible, free of charge. I truly am sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Susan Novak
