  • To William’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I, myself, have found comfort in reading Job 14:14,15 where it shows that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort and strength as well, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8)

  • Diane ~~ My deepest sympathy to you and your family for the loss of your Dad.
    May he Rest in Peace.

  • Joanne and family, please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of Bill. We will always remember how he helped in the time of need. He was full of fun and wonderful with whomever he came in contact with. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Joanne and family.
