To Ruta's family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I was drawn to her obituary, as I too have a passion for dance, especially ballet. It's so hard to lose someone we love, but the seeming finality of death is what makes it especially difficult. Job 14:14,15 gives us confidence that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort and strength, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever, and Ruta can once again "leap" for joy. (Isaiah 25:8)
