To the family of Phillip T. White, Jr. My condolences goes out to all my you get some comfort from the words of family and friends. Along with consoling arms and hugs. The bible confirms that real soon one day we will not experience death anymore at Revelation 21:3,4 God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, suffering, crying, or pain. There is comfort knowing that God cares for us.

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.

God Bless you Phillip! You have been my friend since I can remember. You are flying with the Angels now. We all will be together again one day. May you rest in peace until then. Will miss your messages. See you on the other side. Love always, Becky Peacock

Dear Barbara So sorry to hear about the passing of Phil. May God be with you and your family during this trying time. Love Kathleen C Fowlkes

Kathleen C Fowlkes, Columbia, SC

My condolences to family and friends. Isaiah 25:8 says “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” It was never God’s intention for man to die. The first man Adam brought sin and death onto his offspring. Soon though, God will reverse the effects of sin and we will be reunited with our loved ones. Acts 24:15

My sincerest condolences.May Jehovah the God of all comfort be with you and your dear loved ones during this difficult time.(2Cor1:3,4)

Thank you, Phillip (and family), for your service to country. I pray your journey home is a homecoming of love and lost friends.
