I am so sorry about the passing of my cousin Pat. He was a friendly guy that I enjoyed being around when I had the opportunity. I will always remember him as a cute young boy when we would visit Grandma McDowell. In the last few years he visited the church that I attend and would sit with me and I so enjoyed his company. I am praying for his Mother, Children, and Sister. Such a tragic loss at such a young age.

My condolences to each of you and your family. Imagine living in a world free of sickness, suffering and death. It is possible, for the Bible assures us of such a world and we can trust in Jehovah God’s word for he is able to fulfill whatever he promises. (Isaiah 33:24, 55:11 and Revelation 21:3, 4) Your family are in my prayers.
