  • Memorial Service

I would like to express my deepest sorrow for the lost of your dear loved one. The pain, grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to Gods word for comfort. Please take your Bible and look at what God promises for the future with regard to our dead loved ones. (John 5:28, 29, Acts 24:15 ) Yes, God really will defeat our enemy death forever. This will enable us to one day have the hope of seeing our dead loved ones again. I hope this message will be a source of comfort to you. If you have any questions feel free to contact one of Jehovah's Witnesses or log on to our website at JW.org. Sincerely yours, JW

I met Don during the Bible Study Fellowship study of Revelation 2015-2016 He and I shared fellowship a number of times and during our BSF sessions each week he was always a cheerful, engaging presence. Always having insights and thoughtful input each week. I only knew him a short time but his legacy will remain for a long time. Blessings to you, his family and closest friends.
