I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.

My sincere condolences to the family, sorry for your loss. Please read 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verse 26 to really see that death is temporary, soon death will no longer plague mankind an that means that we won't lose loved ones to death anymore in the near future.

On April 1, 1998 I met a smiling, friendly, firm, kind and thoughtful gentleman that became my business landlord. But he soon became a person that I admired and respected. Although I never sat at his dinner table he was so much more than a landlord to me. His wisdom and life experiences that he shared with me help influence the person I am today . So not only am I a better person, I’m also as a proud and confident small business owner. After twenty years of having the privilege of meeting and knowing him and his family his bright blue eyes and smiling kind face will be with me forever. God bless and rest in forever peace.
