    Whenever I encountered Jesse was he always smiling and joking. All encounters were always positive and he was always looking for ways to help. My condolences to the family as I will continue to lift you all up in prayer. He will be missed, but hold tight to the wonderful memories and legacy he left behind. ~ Triva Mack

    Dear Parks Family, I want to express my condolences. Almighty God encourages us to draw close to him at James 4:8. Further, Revelation 21:3-5 states a positive hope for the future on earth. No, pain, suffering, or death. May these scriptures comfort your family and friends.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." 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.

    Norma, my heart is pained as you, family & friends are trying to deal with the sadness and difficulties of loosing your loved one. I hope you can find comfort if not today, another day in these words: Imagine—endless life without pain, suffering, or sorrow!  Jehovah God has given Jesus the power to resurrect billions who will live on earth.  The Bible promises: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelaton 21:3-5. Warmest regards.
