Joy & Family,

I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your dad!  Ed was a great friend to both of my parents and because of his kindness, along with your family, our family moved to Union City years ago.  Please know that we will keep you and your family in our prayers!

My most sincere condolences to the family. Few words can express our sorrow when we lose someone we truly love. And I imagine you might feel that the pain of losing a loved one is so deep that it will never go away. But thankfully the Bible tells us: Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself, and he himself will sustain you. (Psalm 55:22) He can give you the courage and the strength to cope. So never underestimate the power of prayer. God is always there when we need Him the very most. And if you would like more help in dealing with your grief please visit www.jw.org.
