I’m so sorry for your recent loss. My deepest condolences to your family. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit JW.org and search “When Someone You Love Dies”, it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.

Fly with the angels, Uncle Earl. Always loved your sweet spirit and remember so vividly the many, many fun family times in your basement, sunroom and living room. Always with your pipe. You were the epitome of the “good old days”. Love you!!!
