May the friends and family of Mr. Humphrey 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/

To all family and friends, I am sorry for your loss. Difficult times such as these are made better when we consider Jehovah's comforting words found in the Bible.1 Corinthians 15:26 helps comfort us in knowing that God's Kingdom will bring death to it's end. This is just one of many comforting promises that Jehovah will fulfill. I hope this brings you some comfort during this difficult time.

So sorry for all the family! But know he is with our loved ones in a home with the Lord! He will be always in our hearts! We will hear him sharing our family history every time we think of David????

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time. At the sheriffs' department we called him Sparky and he was a very well liked and respected deputy. Retired Capt. Charlie Brown

Charlie and Jackie Brown, Tybee/Metter,

Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of David. I knew David since about 1953 as we lived in the same neighborhood on Alabama Ave for many years. We had a lot of fun together back in high school and my time at Armstrong College. He would come by and visit me at my dad's Amoco station on President St and we would have a good time talking about current events. He was a great guy and I wish I lived closer so we could have kept up our friendship during my adult life. Rest easy old friend!

Vernon Black, Greensboro, GA

My sincere condolences to the family, during this difficult time may you find encouragement from 1 Corinthians chapter 15 an verse 26. At that scripture it tells us that soon death will be done away with for good. That will definitely happen in the very near future.

Kay F, Savannah, Ga

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

Sue and family,I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. My heart goes out to you and prayers are for your peace and comfort in the days to come. I love you.

Marie James Banderas, Savannah , Ga

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.

While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you (John 5:28 & 29) Please visit www.jw.org for consoling answers to questions like: Why do we grow old and die? Is there any hope for our dead loved ones? and What is the meaning of life?

Jacqueline Casique, Loganville, GA

We were very sorry to hear about David's passing. He was the keeper for our family's history. Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife and family.
