    Cecil was a long time friend and co-worker. Never was there a time that I didn't enjoy talking with him. Cecil always had a smile and kind words any time I was around him. Condolences to the entire family on your loss.

    My deepest sympathies on the loss of your loved one.  May you find some comfort in Nahum 1:7, which says: "Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him." Our loving God can bring you the comfort you need. He also has made the SURE promise that there will be a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored into a paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Isaiah 55:11) Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
