    So sorry for your loss.
    Keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers

  3. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Leo. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit JW.org and search “When Someone You Love Dies”; it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.

  4. So sorry for your loss very hard to lose your mate may he Rest In Peace in the arms of the Savior

  5. Dear Mary, I am so sorry for your deep loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you, and your children. All my love, Debbie Smeathers
