    Dear grieving family,

    My wife and I are very sorry for your tremendous loss and would like to express our condolences to the entire family. We cannot imagine the great pain and sorrow you are experiencing during this most difficult time.

    When we lose someone we love so dearly we are left with a very strong desire to see that person again. It’s wonderful to know that Jehovah God has promised we will see our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 gives this wonderful reassurance: “Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” What a marvelous hope!

    Once again we wish to express our condolences to the family. And although we cannot erase the pain and sorrow you are feeling, it is our hope that this can give you a small measure of comfort.

    George always had a smile and a warm welcome when you met him. He definitely reflected the joy of the LORD. He’ll be missed at BBC but we’ll look forward to his greeting in heaven!
