    Mr. Charlie was a kind hearted man with a gentle smile that you couldn't help but like and he would always ask about my son, that Bogans Boy, who got attached to him when he & his family attended Carey Hill under the guidance of Rev. Clifford Williams, before relocating while in the military. I pray that God will give continued strength to you, Janice, Brenda, Sallie, & the rest of the family and you will find peace and comfort in the memories of your daddy.

    Our warmest sympathies goes to you and yours in these difficult moments. May you find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. 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.
