    I HAVE GONE OVER AND OVER IN MY HEAD WHAT I SHOULD SAY BUT IT ALWAYS COMES BACK TO THIS.....I AM STILL HEARTBROKEN. I HAVE LOVED RONNIE FROM THE SECOND THAT I KNEW HE WAS MY COUSIN. HE MADE ME LAUGH AND I MEAN LAUGH ABOUT MY "DIRTY FACE" AMONGST MANY OTHER THINGS. HE ALWAYS TOLD ME WHEN I WAS WRONG (WHICH I MIGHT SAY WAS RARELY EVER ha) BUT ALWAYS TOLD ME WHEN I WAS RIGHT. HE WAS KIND, HANDSOME, FUNNY, QUIET, STRONG, LOVING, GIVING BUT MAINLY HE WAS ALWAYS ABOUT FAMILY. RONNIE HILL, I WILL MISS YOU EVERYTIME I HEAR A JOKE, SEE A BIG OLE TRUCK, WATCH A GAME OR HEAR THAT WHISPER IN THE WIND. I LOVE YOU AND AS YOU USED TO TELL ME ALL THE TIME....."BOO-BOO NEVER FORGET WHO'S YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU COME FROM".....I WON'T...EVER!!!! REST IN PARADISE COUSIN!!!

    Dear Family, Please accept my condolences. The sting of death is hard to bear. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, understands our sorrow. He doesn’t want us hurting. In fact, in His Word, the Bible, He gives us encouragement. It’s explained in His Word about why death and suffering happen. Additionally, He helps us to understand that this was not meant to be. Acts 24:15, in the Bible, notes that there will be a resurrection! Revelation 21:4 mentions that our Creator promises that death, mourning, and pain will be things of the past. What’s more, 1 Corinthians 15:26 confirms that death will be brought to nothing. Imagine that! A world in which there’ll be no more death. Can you picture it? I am encouraging you to take heart! Currently, your loved one is now resting. But, in the very near future, that loved one will be raised---resurrected---to the prospect of living here, on earth—FOREVER! This is a PROMISE from our Creator, HIMSELF! Isn’t that wonderful, good news? I hope these words of encouragement have done for you what I have intended for them to do. And, that is, to provide you with some comfort, peace, and strength.

    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.
