Our Almighty and loving Father has caused His Peace to overshadow you and in His great Providence Will, leads and directs your paths and sustains you through all your days... "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. John 15:5 Chun, Sandra, Ricky, Rudy, Johnny - while you mourn the passing on of your dad and a husband, be comforted in knowing that he went on beyond this natural world into his reward and fellowship with his brethren who welcomed him in celebration! We celebrate with you, his life of Servanthood and a carrier of The Word. What beauty existed in those eyes that saw the world through the eyes of compassion and true Agape love. His prayers will go before you cover you. We love you guys. The history and bonds remain a legacy we share. Peace & Blessings, David, Esther & Jim, Zena.

I am sorry for your loss. Jehovah is a loving and caring God and offers us much encouragement through these difficult times. A scripture i find very encouraging is Isaiah 25:8. Yes Jehovah will do away all things that bring us pain which includes death. How satisfying that will be!May positive memories fill your heart and mind through this difficult time.
