Sharon and Michael, I was out of town when news came out about your dad and have just recently heard of his death. I am so very, very sorry. You have had quite the time with the deaths of both parents, your mom in December and now your dad. What a difficult time for you both and for your families. The Callahans were both special people and such great and supportive parents. What a wonderful legacy they have left in you and your children! Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

What a blessing to have had Mr. Callahan with you for such a long time. God, through His word, The Bible, gives us the hope of "everlasting life." How wonderful it would be to share an eternity with our dead loved ones. The resurrection promise makes that possible. (Revelations 21:3,4); (John 5:28,29) To find consoling answers to questions like, "Why do we grow old and die?", " Can the dead really live again?", and more, please visit www.jw.org.

Sincerely, Nitha & Family , ,

My condolences goes out to Sharon and Michael and their entire family. May God give you all strength in your time of bereavement. It was really a pleasure caring for Mr. C. I'm going to miss him. But I know he's really happy now that he's reunited again with Mrs.C. Be Blessed.
