I am so very sorry to read of the loss of your loved one. Please accept my very deepest condolences. During sad times like this, we can be encouraged by the Bible’s promise found at Rev. 21:4 which helps us to see that death, is not a part, of life—because here God promises to do away with it. Further we know the scripture is here referring to conditions on earth, because neither death, mourning, outcry, nor pain, exists in heaven. I sincerely hope this scripture gives your family the comfort it has given mine, and if you’d like to read the Bible online or learn about God’s promises for our loved ones who’ve fallen asleep in death, please feel free to visit JW. org. Again, my very deepest condolences to those who love and cherish Larry.
Larry was a wonderful volunteer in our Perry office. Always helpful and welcoming to our clients. He will be greatly missed by our staff and clients. Prayers for all who love him. Carla Morrow, HR Director, New Opportunities, Inc.
