I am truly sorry for the loss and pain that the Pryzbyc family and friends are feeling because of losing Jennifer recently in death, way too soon.  Most of us have had to endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death.  What helped me the most was prayer and faith in God's promises like found here at 1 Corinthians 15: 26 and it tells us: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing."   Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick," ever again.  God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25)  Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago."    Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life."    Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever.  For Jehovah himself has spoken it."For more comforting scriptures please visit:  It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me  find the answer to Why?  I know it will do the same for you.  John 17:3  Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief.  Psalm 34:18     Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.  Feel free to contact me if you wish at my email address;  [email protected]      


  I pray it will bring you comfort to please watch this beautiful video (song 144) entitled "Keep Your Eyes on the Prize" 

or watch this short, faith strengthening video:  "Can The Dead Really Live Again?"                                          


Mr. and Mrs. Pryzbyc, Yvonne, and Renee,

Wasn't it just yesterday that we were all next door neighbors?  I was so saddened to hear from my mom the other night about Jennifer's passing.  My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May He give you strength and comfort in the days ahead.

My deepest sympathy to the family!  May you find peace at this time of sorrow!  Tina Armiage-Lynn

Rosemary, Yvonne and family: I am saddened and so sorry for your loss of Jennifer. I did not know her but I truly understand your grief and pain in the loss of someone so young. A little over 2 months ago my youngest son Beau died unexpectatly. I am praying that God will give you courage, strength and comfort in the days ahead.

                                                                                           In God's love, Lois Fowler   

Jen you were an amazing person. I will miss arguing football and politics with you. ❤ 

We extend our sincere condolences to Jennifer‘s entire family. When we lose someone it causes heartache that can be hard to bear. But in this difficult time may you find strength from our Heavenly Father’s promise that death is an “enemy” that he will bring to nothing. And we can be reunited with our loved ones, who have fallen asleep in death by means of a resurrection. - Revelation 21:3,4; John 6:40 What a wonderful day this will be! May this precious hope that awaits us and the love and support of family and friends bring you a measure of comfort now and in the days ahead.
