Dear Family,
Please accept my condolences regarding your cherished one.
I know the sorrow you feel right now is like a day without sun.
Pain from the death of a loved one causes an agonizing sting.
We can’t concentrate, we’re paralyzed, and we can’t focus on anything.
Seems like all is lost at the thought of never seeing them again.
But, TAKE HEART! God’s Word, the Bible says, this is not the end!
Acts 24:15 notes that there will be a resurrection.
YES! Again—we’ll see those whom we’ve loved and regarded with tender affection!
Revelation 21:4 tells us that death will be no more,
And that we won’t cry or mourn as we’ve done before.
So, my hope is that I’ve encouraged you through my words of condolence.
Please visit JW.org for further reference.

My memories are how much of a bear of a man he was. How I would try to crush his hand when I shook. No chance. He was a gentle giant. I will miss him dearly. I will always have him in my thoughts'
