Celebrating the life of Helen Briley Whitehurst
Thank you for signing Helen Briley Whitehurst's Guestbook
To the family,
My condolences to the loss of your love one. I know it is hard to deal with this grief-stricken pain. But God, whose name is Jehovah, stated in his word the Bible that “death will be no more”. (Psalms 83:18, 1 Timothy 3:16, Revelation 21:4). Also, his son, Jesus Christ, assured us at John 5:28,29: “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, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment”. So, rest assured, you will be able to see your love one again.
I’ve attached a link to one of our tracts from our website, jw.org. The tract asks this question, “Can the Dead Really Live Again?” It has wonderful scriptural encouragement that will help from God’s word.
Again, my sincerest condolences,

I only met Mrs. Whitehurst after she moved to EHR, but I had such special daily visits with her. She didn't say much, but she would give me the sweetest smiles. It just melted my heart. I will truly miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
