May the thoughts of knowing that friends and family share in your grief be of comfort to the Russom family for the loss of your dear loved one. God keeps those who have fallen asleep in death in His memory because they are precious in his eyes “Psalm 116:15” and “John 5:28,29”

Sheila, , Ga

We send our heartfelt sympathies to all the Russom family. Uncle Bo was a wonderful man who helped me catch my first fish (a sun perch at Tybee) and our families shared many fun times together, especially when his family lived in Milwaukee and we lived in Des Plaines. His & Cynthia's many kind acts for my parents during their last years in Savannah were especially appreciated.

Bo and I shared the same home room in high school. Lost track of each other after high school but reconnected this year as neighbors at Savannah Square. He will be missed Walter Fisch, Savannah, GA

Bo and I played golf together at Bacon Park Golf Course for years. He will be missed - he was a good man. God bless! Carl Looper

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 ressurection 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.

Kelly, Pooler, Ga

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 where Jehovah God promises to do away with death forever. We look forward to this beautiful hope in the near future. For more information and encouragement please visit jw.org.

So sorry about the death of your love one . Since death wasn't originally God's purpose for mankind it's very painful to deal, please read the wonderful hope that the Bible holds out at ( Isaiah 25:8). My thaughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Dorothy, Dacula Ga,

Bo's splash in this world is over, but the ripples of his splash will continue...for generations and surely have affect in eternity. My life is better for having known him. He is part of the fabric of God's warm blanket which as comforted me over many years. I am thankful to God, the "giver of good and perfect gifts"....and Bo Russom was among those good and perfect gifts through which God has blessed me.
