    My Great Uncle Dalton. I have the great privledge of being married to the grand daughter of your late brother Honore, and I got you as an uncle as Lagniappe! Thank you for all you taught me, forever some of the most joyous moments of my life in the field with the dogs. But most of all the way you loved Evelyn, those were the real lessons. I am forever grateful for you sharing your life with me.

    The Bible at Psalms 90:10 says “The days of our life are seventy years, or perhaps eighty, if we are strong…they are soon gone, and we fly away.” Mr. Comeaux’s strength lasted 95 years! That is many years of memories to share with friends and family. Yet that does not compare to the promised eternal life (John 3:16). This is a reality for Jesus resurrected Lazarus who had been dead for 4 days. So Jesus will unlock the gates of the grave, just as he ordered that the stone of Lazarus’ tomb be rolled away. Jesus will bring back to life those who sleep in death just as he did for his friend Lazarus (John 11:39-44). Now try to imagine the happy reunion when friends and relatives, once separated by death, embrace Mr. Comeaux again! Please visit jw.org for the comfort God gives through the Bible online and videos. My sincere condolences to the family at this time of sorrow.
