    So sorry for your loss. May the scriptures found at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29 bring true comfort and hope at this time. It is a promise found in God’s word.

  2. Stephanie Reynolds says:

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in Jesus words at John 5:28,29. There Jesus promised a resurrection of our loved ones, saying that the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. These resurrected ones will inherit the earth, as Jesus spoke about in Matthew chapter 5. Then, under the rule of God’s Kingdom, they will enjoy life the way God originally intended, in perfect health with no sorrow, pain or death. (Psalms 37:29. Isaiah 33:24. Revelation 21:4) What a wonderful time that will be! If you would like to learn more about this hope, please visit jw.org. Please accept my condolences.

    So sorry for your loss. It’s never easy losing a parent, no matter how old you are.
    I was always in awe of your dad, having been a fireman.

    God Bless

    Phil was a great employee a good man and a friend to me. When I was young he would always take the time to answer my questions or show me how to do things the right way. I am out of the country, but I will be thinking about our times together during the funeral. May God bless Phil.
