    I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will soon eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Christ’s] voice and come out”! (John 5:28, 29) God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isa. 25:8) Then, instead of having to “weep with those who weep,” all earth’s inhabitants will “rejoice with those who rejoice.”?—Rom. 12:15.

    Con-Clifton was an ambitious and driven man ALL his life that refused to be still! When I lived in Arapahoe he always would pick with me about Retiring out, which it took him a long time to! He was a man of many trades and would help family/friends in anyway he could. So to his family.... from our family to yours, we send prayers love and condolences. Thank you Con Clifton for the many stories and life lessons you shared with me. Pollock Family

    Our condolences to the Nelson family. May your family and friends fine straight & comfort from Almighty God Jehovah and His Son Jesus. Jesus comforted Martha & Mary when their brother Lazusus fell asleep in death. Jesus said" I am the resurrection and the life.." Jesus felt there pain he feels your family's. The resurrection hope is a sure promise from Almighty God who cannot lie. Again our condolences.

    It seems unfair that death should have the power to take away someone we love. When it happens the thought of never again being able to talk, laugh, comfort, or hold your loved one again can be devastating. My condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you can find comfort from your Bibles at Nahum 1:7. God is a stronghold for the distressed.

    Death may have taken away your loved one, but the wonderful memories of Theodore are still here. They are memories that you can think about. Memories that can bring a smile to your face. Our heavenly father Jehovah God knows what your are going through. Jehovah wants to help you find comfort in your time of need .He tells us through his words found in the bible at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 that he wants to comfort us in all our trials including death of a loved one. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. I hope these words from the Bible helps you find some comfort in your time of need.
