My condolences to the Cooler family for the loss of your dear loved one. During this most difficult time, may your hearts be comforted by Jehovah God's promise to swallow up death forever, and to wipe away the tears from all faces(Isaiah 25:8). Also, during the days to come, may Mr. Cooler's sweet memories fill your hearts with joy and peace.

Thomas, Snellville, 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.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I so enjoyed talking to Mr Cooler with his cute jolly laugh when he would visit Cheryl

William, Cheryl & Courtney Sanderlin, Savannah, GA

I wanted to send my condolences to the family. I was comforted to know that it was never God'd original purpose for us to grow old get sick and pass, Esc. 3;11. God's Kingdom or Government will soon eliminate all causes of pain, suffering and even death, Revelation 21:3,4. By means of the resurrection all those in the memorial tombs will be brought to life here on a beautiful paradise earth to be reunited with their love ones, John 5;28,29. Till then my thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Timothy, Ridgeland, SC
