Condolence Messages

  1. To: The Williams Family.
    I am sorry for your lost. May you find comfort in God’s Word the Bible. At Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say ” I am sick. ” It was not our God’s purpose for us to get sick, grow old or die. Our God has made loving provisions to remove suffering and death, and bring us to perfection where we will live forever, with vigor and youth. Job 33:25 Let the flesh become fresher than in youth, Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.
    May the hope and promise in these Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead. Please visit jw.org.

  2. My thoughts are with your family. I did not know Mr. Williams well except for his smile but I know he left us a wonderful daughter and person, Brenda, which is a great gift for any man to leave on this earth. Take care.
