Extending my condolences to the Anderson family and friends for your loss. The Bible holds out hope for our dear love one. At "2 corinthians 1:3,4" says "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Father of tender mercies, and the God of all comfort who comfort us in all our trails so that we be able to comfort others in any sort of trails with the comfort we received from God."

I worked with Tillman at Sysco Foods from January 1989 through June 1995. We had a great friendship built on mutual respect and I will remember him as a man of great Character, Integrity, Morals, Values and Principles. God bless his spirit and God bless and comfort his family during this difficult time.

Tillman was the consummate professional. He was a friend for over 30 years. We shall miss his quick laughter and friendship. Our deepest sympathy to his family. He loved each of you so much

I'm so sorry for your loss. Death is not something that was intended to be experienced by humans. The bible holds out a beautiful promise of a resurrection at John 5:28,29. We can see our loved ones again very soon. I hope this scripture brings you some comfort as it has done for me in the past when I experienced loss. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject and so much more.

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4.
