    El Simon DAD, we love you, and missing you so much .
    we’ll see each other in the new world.
    The end of suffering is at hand!
    God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Jehovah God makes this possible by means of his Son, Jesus who gave his life for the world of mankind.

    Dear Mary,
    We are so sorry that you have lost your dad. That is a horrible sting that only Jehovah can correct. Isaiah 25:8 says “Jehovah will swallow up death forever.” Until then may you be comforted by Jehovah and all your family and friends. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Christian Love
