  13. Dear Family,
    I wish to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one. The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible’s promises give comfort and hope. “ And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”- Revelation 21:4. If you would like to know more about what the Bible promises, please visit: jw.org free of charge or obligation.
    With Deepest Sympathy, Kristy

    Again traveler you have come a long way led by that star. May you farewell. I am missing you intensely Companero. I was lost in the middle of some kind of dark night and came out the other side and prepared a place for us to sit in the screen room to sit and learned you are on the journey. I lit a candle and poured us a drink. I will meet you joyfully on that road someday my friend and we’ll journey together again.
