  1. Mary Ann. I am sorry he is gone. I did not know he was sick. You will see him again. God bless. Phil

  2. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one, please accept my deepest condolences. Our heavenly father, Jehovah, created us to live and not die, in fact he describes death in the scriptures as man s enemy and he hates to see us suffer or die. But God has a purpose and yearns to bring back our loved ones by means of a resurrection thru his kingdom ruled by Jesus Christ.
    This is why we were taught to pray for that kingdom to come at Matthew 6: 9, 10; this is known as the Lord’s prayer by many. Our loving heavenly father, Jehovah promises us at Revelation 21: 3,4 : And he will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. So your tears of sadness will be tears of joy. How wonderful!
