    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.

    I was just thinking of your family a couple of days ago. I remember "Bill" from our middle school days going to use the phone at Nana's. My sincere condolences to the Ross family.

    It was a privilege and honor meeting Mrs. Lillian she was an angel. She was so soft spoken and genuine. I always use to pick with her about her hands, I told her she them cooking hands and I knew she could throw down in the kitchen and she laughed an said I can cook!! We smiled at each other!! I would always make sure I saw her soon as I entered the building and made sure I let her know I loved her and she would say I love you too and smiled... She will be missed dearly!! Love you always Mrs. Lillian!!
