Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Louis Crum. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Crum, reflect on the time when aging..., sickness... & death... will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19)
May God’s word bring you comfort during this difficult time and in the days ahead as we await the fulfillment of his promises.......
