    My deepest condolences to the family for your loss. Derek Lester will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. You will agree with me, that death is one thing we all wish to have the power to destroy. You will find comfort to know that our loving Father Jehovah feels our pain and will soon accomplish that for us. This is the promise he gave us in Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces..." What a great relief to know that death will be destroyed forever! Furthermore, Jehovah God also gives us the hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones by means of a resurrection. In Acts 25:15 we read:".....There is going to be a resurrection…” May these promises from our True God comfort and give you strength while awaiting to embrace your dear loved one again in the very near future. Is this really going to happen?

    I will miss him..He was the brother I never had. He was family! He would always check in by driving over. No calls beforehand, he’d just show up. He’d say let’s go check out Daffy Dans. He loved leather jackets and was an impeccable dresser! We miss him. Our prayers, love and support to his family.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his 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 the Family: Very sorry for your loss. In the days, weeks, months ahead may you be comforted by the memories of the good times you shared together and the promises found at Isaiah 26:19 and John 11:23, 24.
