I am very sorry for your loss. It is difficult to find the right words to express during a time of grief. But I hope and pray that your family can find comfort in the promise that God will surely remember our loved ones that have passed and promises a remarkable hope for them and us. (John 5:28, 29)
To the Withers family and friends, I am sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you. Marianne, was/is a wonderful and caring person. I know your in heaven, praising God and singing with angel's.
" For I know my Redeemer liveth, and at that he shall stand at the latter day upon earth. And though after my skin warms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God." Job 19:25-26

My condolences to the Withers family. When loosing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help ones cope with the loss. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to "swallow up death forever." He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time (jw.org)
Marianne I love and i will miss you. You will always be in my heart. I want to say sorry to Rick and Ricky , sending you all my love.
She was a great person glad we had many great times over the years. She will be missed
