James Paul “Jim” Coulter, 66, of Arnold, MD died July 16 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was the son of the late Edward and Raphael Coulter of Pinellas Park, FL. He spent his childhood in Greenbelt, MD and graduated from Parkdale High School. Jim began his career at the Washington Post as a press operator, rising to crew chief and eventually retiring as a buyer in the Purchasing Department. He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Sylvia Filipovic Coulter; daughters, Carolyn Ward (Jeff) of Stevensville, MD and Lauren DeMunda (Todd) of Viera, FL; stepdaughter, Samantha Boardman (Frank) of Shrewsbury, MA and grandchildren, Violet and Charlotte DeMunda, Garrett and Aubrey Ward, and Ellie Boardman. He was preceded in death by brothers, Wayne and Bruce Coulter (Debbie). Also surviving are two sisters, Mary Ellen Woolard (Joe) of Brooksville, FL and Patricia Lowry (S.L.) of Mechanicsville, VA, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. A lifelong Marylander, Big Jim enjoyed Nationals baseball, observing the wildlife in his backyard, and making his famous spaghetti sauce. Most importantly, he loved his grandchildren and spoiling them as only Granddaddy could do. He will be dearly missed by everyone whose lives he touched.

Dear Family, Sorry to read about the loss of your husband, father and grandpa. I too spent my childhood in Greenbelt which was a small town then. A prayer for the family that you all will find comfort, laughter and peace remembering all your great times together.

I’m so sorry for your recent loss. My deepest condolences to your family. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit and search “When Someone You Love Dies”, it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.

Please accept my most sincere sympathy for the death of your loved one. We can find comfort in the word of God because it assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15).  God promises to give life back to millions of people who have died, and he desires to do so very soon.

We know this from what a servant of God from the past, Job, asked God: “If a man dies, can he live again?  I will wait all the days of my compulsory service (death) until my relief comes.   You (Jehovah) will call, and I (Job) will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." (Job 14:14, 15) God is longing to give life back to those who have died.

Perhaps these words do not calm your pain but we are certain that God will resurrect all those who demonstrate faith in the sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ. Reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you the hope and strength to keep going until all of God’s promises are fulfilled.  May these words bring you and your family much comfort from Jehovah God, the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4).
