I would like to express my 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 regards 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

To the Timberlake family, Very much saddened by the news of Captain Timberlake's passing. As a fledging young pilot with Continental Airlines I fondly remember the challenging days of introducing the "state of the art" B737-300 into service. I had the honor of flying with Captain Timberlake in those early days and I remember him as a patient mentor; he was also a true gentleman. My heartfelt condolences to you all in these difficult times. Rest assured that Walt leaves behind nothing but the best of memories. Dan Droogleever Capt. Continental Airlines (r'trd)

My prayers are with the family at this time. Walt and I flew together many times at Continental. He was always a joy to fly with. Always a pleasure to see his name as Captain on my schedule when I was a young FO. A good role model in the cockpit. The memories will be with me forever.
