    It saddens us to hear you are mourning the loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 34:18. It reads: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." 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.

    I was one of many who Harry Morrow taught the game of golf. He was an outstanding golfer, a excellent teacher and a wonderful human being. I will always cherish the time we spent together during his lessons and playing the various golf courses here in Indiana. To the family do look to the horizon from which cometh our strength, for the Lord is our Light and our Salvation.
