To The Family Of Karen M. (Curry) Malis: You have my sincere condolences during this sad occasion. The one and only true living God, who has created all things as we consider reading Psalms 83:18, in the Holy Bible. The Sovereign Lord Jehovah is the most high over the entire Universe! He deserves Exclusive Devotion from all of mankind and Sacred Service to him,and to him alone.

I would like to share a Scripture with you from the Holy Bible at Ecc 9:5-"For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all, nor do they have any more reward, because all memory of them is forgotten."

Do you have any related questions such as; Why do we die? Or Is there Life after death? I invite you to a website: www.jw.org for accurate knowledge of the Holy Bible and more Bible Truths!
