    Please accept my heartfelt condolence on the loss of your dear one; Mr. Smith. My family and I have found comfort in the Bible's promise of a time when death will be no more; - "And He (God) 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." - Revelation 21:4. May the memories of your loved one sustain you until God's promises are soon fulfilled - "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day."- John 6:40. Please visit www.jw.org for more of God's marvelous promises that 'is around the corner'.

    To the Family. Please accept my sincere condolences. God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope during difficult times and Jehovah God 'the God of all comfort' (2 Corinthians 1:3) is fully aware of your sadness. Revelation 21:4 promises, "He will wipe out every tear" and will bring back to life those who sleep in death as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection.". Please be assured of these future events because God himself declares 'I am making all things new' and 'these words are faithful and true.' ~Revelation 21:5

    Dear Mary and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you honor your husband and father, a wonderful gentleman we were proud to call "friend". We will always be grateful to Henry for his kind words of encouragement as mama worked through cardiac rehab--he was an optimist who always had a friendly smile, a warm hug, and his laughter was contagious. We shall always remember him and be grateful for the friendship we shared.

    TO: Mary, David and Tanya: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of our precious Henry. From the time I was a child, I remember it was always a happy time when Henry came around. He and David always brought the biggest grin to Gram's face when they stopped by. He stayed that way until the very end. And a brave and honorable soul he was; using some of his last strength to visit his aunt before she left this earth. I have no doubt they are all now joined in the glorious joy that is eternity. May GOD continue to bless you for taking his hand and walking with him through his life.
