                                                    Weep not for me though I have gone Into that gentle night
                                     
Grieve if you will, but not for long, Upon my soul’s sweet flight
                                          
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest, There is no need for tears
                                     
For with your love I was so blessed, For all those years

    You were a valiant soldier. Placed here to lead, direct and show. A love so pure, unending and whole. We saw your steps falter, stumble and then stop. We saw your eyes wander off to a distant land, we didnt understand that God was directing you with His own hand. And then on that day you left us, without even a last goodbye, we knew God's perfect will was done and we didn't have to ask why. So now we're left with many precious memories, to last until that day when we are all together in glory on that great getting up day! Love Always Jessica, Jon, Lani and Jassy

    Our warmest sympathies goes to you and yours in these difficult moments. May you find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. What a loving God who cares about each one of us. 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.

    ??This is very sad news. But I have Good News Gods Kingdom the one in the Lords Prayer will bring blessings to mankind Like the earth will give produce and be blessed, the mountains will over flow with food, the dead will come back to life here on earth and live forever, everything to do with old age will be gone because the old will be young again. (Matthew 6:9,10; Psalms 67:6; Psalms 72:16; Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:11,29; Job 33:25) Would you and the family like to get more comfort? If so here's my email helpfulones1@gmail.com
