I recently read about the loss of your dear loved one. Although we are not acquainted personally, please accept my condolences. Losing a dear loved one can leave a very empty space in oneís life. Please find strength, hope, and comfort in the God of Comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4).
I am sorry to hear of your loss. I hope that these scriptures at Job 14:14,15 and Revelation 21:4 will provide some comfort for the family and friends. Also, for some comforting articles please visit jw.org.
Uncle Russell was a very special man. I have wonderful memories of Chic when he would come to Lafayete and help my daddy at his service station. RIP
