So sorry to read about your mom. She was a very special lady. Always enjoyed her when we working on committees for church. Will say an extra prayer for you all. Thinking of you all fondly.

I was sorry to read about Yasuko's passing. I never had a chance to meet her in person but I knew of her through newspaper articles and photos of her, stored in our scrapbooks, from the very early years of Women of the World (early 80's I believe). Sincere condolences to Yasuko's family.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Death stings very much. It’s one of the hardest thing to cope with. May the “God of all comfort” gives you strength and peace of mind in this time of difficulties. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. JW.org
