    To the family and friends: 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 Dennis' family. We culled the jack rabbit population while in HS. Some maybe during school hours. Was saddened to learn of his passing, but know if it was hunting, he went to see his heavenly father happy. Rest in peace Dennis.
