Dear Mia and Family,
I am so saddened to read of your father’s passing. He and my father were both Marines in the 2nd Div during WWII and became lifelong friends. They had many similarities. They were both named Roland, were born one day apart, were both artistic and were both from the Midwest. They kept in touch throughout their lifetimes until my father passed in 2011.
My sincere condolences on the loss of your father. He was a great man.
I am so very sorry for your loss. But may the words of Jesus Christ that are to be found in John 5:28,29 gives each of you the hope of seeing him again when he is resurrected by Jesus Christ, himself. And then after he is brought back, he will be able to live forever on this earth,as the Bible promises us all in Psalm 37:29 which says: The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it. So may these words bring a real sense of comfort to your hearts and allow your minds eye to see your selves welcoming him back into your arms again to hold and to cherish forever and fot more info on the future hope that Jehovah God offers us all thru Jesus Christ, then go to JW.org and find out what other promises await you in the pages of the Bible.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts and your wonderful memories will give you some relief during this difficult time.
Dear family and loved ones, please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It has helped me and many others to know that the Bible promises that soon God “will swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and that He will bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones (John 5 : 28, 29) . May “the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,” comfort you during your time of sadness. (2 Corinthians 1: 3)
Jack was our dear friend for over 30 years. We were often entertained at the home of Jack, his mother Mabel and daughter Mia on Wellesley including the festive celebration of Mabel’s 100th birthday. We traveled together to his hometown of Toledo, Il to gather information needed for Jack to write a short story about his mother’’s travels from Toledo to Nebraska in a Model T in 1913 before proper roads were built.
We were members with Jack of an outdoors club which sponsored a yearly car rally and Jack talked me in to joining The Pittsburgh Poetry Society of which I am still a member.
He always had some hobby going. I still cherish a lovely pottery pot he created in a kiln in the Wellesley home. He was truly loved and will be missed.
