    Leroy was a special person to everyone in our family. He was a very dedicated employee but more importantly a valued friend. We all thought the world of him.

    2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". James 5:11 "God is very tender in affection and merciful". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he care for you!

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. 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. ~~~ You are also cordially invited to the memorial of Jesus death. The means by which the promise of a paradise is possible.
