    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us! You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

    To my cousins the Steward family. I will miss Grady so dearly. We just had a long conversation on the phone last week. Little did I know that it would be our last. Grady shared so much with me that night and I will forever cherish every word in my ❤️ heart. One of the greatest stories he told me were, when my dad gave him his very 1st dollar 💵! He said nobody could tell him anything ! He thought he was “rich”! Lol I Thank him for being not only my 1st cousin, but one of my best cousins. Make he forever RIP in glory land.Love Always, Vanessa Sullivan and family from Sacramento California

    To the Stewart Family - We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear father. Much pain will be felt and many tears will be shed for him. In time though, you will smile when you think of a special memory or something funny he said. The resurrection hope will keep you looking forward to the time when Jesus will call and “he will answer”.
