    To the Canada 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. To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible lessons featured and more. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson.

  12. Roger I will truly miss seeing you in church Praising God. And when we did street Ministry to hear you get on the Mic on 5th Avenue and share what you been thru to what God had and was doing for you had truly blessed my soul. That is an awesome Memory I will have to see you witnessing to many of people on the streets to tell them the Goodness of Jesus. To hear the Testimony one after another was very encouraging to me. Rest on my brother. Praying strength to your family.
