He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken [ it ].

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Uncle Jim. While the years have moved quickly for all of us I remember and have fond memories from my youth of the time I spent with him. As an adult I can look back and realize he was in many ways a kid at heart. I wish I could sit and have a beer with him (or two or ).

I am saddened to hear of the passing of a really good man. Your father. The stories that could be told of your dad and mine could be endless for certain. My greatest sympathy to you all.
