I am sorry for your loss. Death is always a painful event for us all. However Jehovah offers us comfort in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8. I always find this scripture to be of encouragement. Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. How satisfying that will be. May joyful memories fill your minds and hearts through this difficult time.

Our sincere condolences,Hosea 13:14 reminds us of a wonderful hope for the future, it says: From the power of the grave I (God) will redeem them; From death I will recover them. May this scripture offer you and your dear loved ones a measure of comfort during this difficult time.

I'm sorry for your loss. Death is a painful ordeal. The scripture at Revelation 21:4 gives hope. There, Jehovah God, promises to do away with sickness and death very soon. This scripture has helped me in the past when dealing with loss. I hope it helps you too. For more information, please visit jw.org.

Delano and I went thru Savannah High and Armstrong many years ago. I have never met anyone as nice as Delano - never heard him say anything negative about anyone. Never had much need of a lawyer, but, the only need I had was my and my wife's Will - and he did that for me. Hope to see you again one day. Dick Leech
