We are very grateful for David's service in the U.S. Army, having defended our freedoms that we enjoy today in our patriotic country. In the days ahead, may our God of comfort, Jesus, hold you all in the palm of His hand as you remember and celebrate his life legacy. Cherish the many memories that you all share in your hearts. May our risen Lord richly bless you all. Through the different seasons of life we have had a firm foundation 4jehovah.org and we thoughtfully share.

Family of David,
I am so sorry for your loss. I can imagine the pain you are in and it is always hard to find comfort in the time of grief. There is a time coming where we will get to see our loved ones again and its a promise from our heavenly father. He promises to end death suffering and pain forever at Revelation 21:4. And there will be a resurrection of our loved ones as well John 5:28,29. If you have wondered why we suffer and die today the answers are found at Jw.org which uses the bible as a guide for answers.
