Time's Up. Your cruelty was not forgotten. Karma.

, ,

Our heartfelt and deepest sympathy to the Negron family. May the love of family and friends as well as the words at “Psalm 147:3” and “2 Corinthians 1:3,4” continue to help you get through this most difficult times.

, ,

May the friends and family of Mr. Negron find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. I can't exactly understand how you feel, but our Heavenly Father Jehovah does, and he will give you the strength to endure. May the wonderful memories you have of Dr. Negron bring you comfort and the words found at Isaiah 41:13 where God says he is grasping your right hand, the one saying do not be afraid I will help you during this difficult time. Please go to jw.org if you have any questions about what happens to our loved ones we lose in death.

My two years working for and with Dr. Negron were among the best of my life. It was through him that an article appeared with my name on it, leading me to a long career as a writer. Without that experience, I doubt it would have happened. He showed me the way to success. Thanks, Doc, and best wishes to his family.
