    I was so sorry to hear about Richard's passing, but know that he is in the presence of Jesus. He picked up at my office for Iron Mountain and we talked every time he came in. He was proud of his family and he talked of you all often. I know he will be missed. My prayers for you all for peach and comfort from God.

    We don't know what to say except that we love you. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah does, and will keep raising you up. We hope that our prayers will help a little. God is eager to do it again. Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy;(1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again-Job 14:14,15. Our website is available to anyone who wants to learn more about our Creator and his purpose for obedient mankind.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. Accept our sincere condolences. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." 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.

    God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness." Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One [God] saying to you,...'I will help you.'" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!
