Offering my condolence to the family of Dale Harper. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Harper, reflect on the time when 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 comfort you each day, as we await the fulfillment of his promises! (Joshua 23:14)
