My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Helen. The loss of our loved ones can be very painful. The Bible offers a wonderful hope for our loved ones that have died. May you find comfort in the scripture at John 5:28, 29 where our Heavenly Father Jehovah God promises that our loved ones will be resurrected here on earth under paradise conditions.Psalms 37:10, 11, 29. Our Father is always ready to comfort you as he is the God of comfort, 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. May your memories of her help sustain and comfort you.

My condolences to the Lyman family. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Helen. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering
