    What a joy and blessing to have shared life with Arnold. It is not everyday that you meet someone so full of love for others.

    I highly encourage you to take a moment to reflect on what I like to refer to as Arnold’s motto; “I’m just trying to do the right thing.” You see, Arnold understood something many miss in life…

    “Thou shalt Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Matthew 22:37-39

    Love you Arnold.

    To the Smith family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) I would like to discuss more with you about God’s promises. Feel free to contact me at (614) 870-2979. Please call.

  4. My deepest condolences for the death of your loved one, Mr. Smith. May you find comfort knowing that others are mourning with you.  The God of heavens feels your pain (Ezekiel 18::32).  He wants to comfort you (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).  He will sooth your broken hearts and give you hope for a marvelous future (Psalm 34:18; Psalm 37:11, 29). The free website, JW.ORG, has more verses of comfort and hope, which I visit often over the years.  It is my sincere wish that it will help you as well.  May His peace be with all of you (Philippians 4:6-7).
