May the many precious memories you’ve shared with Don ease your pain in the days ahead. As you look forward to seeing him, young and healthy, in a world where you will be united forever, hold this promise dear to your hearts: “And he (Jehovah) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore”. May comfort and the peace of God guard YOU during this sad time.

Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.
