  1. Sorry for the loss of your dear loved one

    Leonard. When the enemy death strikes, words are never enough at a time like this, but know that caring thoughts are with you. Find comfort in knowing that God has promised to “swallow

    up death forever”- Isaiah 25:8, and that “he will resurrect our dear loved ones who have passed away”- John 5:28. (jw.org)

  2. Julie, my heartfelt condolences on the loss of “Shorty”. He’ll be serving his hot chili in a better place.

    † Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 â€

  4. So sorry to learn of the loss of Shorty. He was always very kind and generous to myself and my family. I remember how back in 1992 when the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals, I received black and gold balloons and flowers as a consolation prize from you guys. Shorty took great pleasure in watching my babies go thru their “firsts” during their early childhood and was a great “Pap”. Thoughts and prayers to his family at this difficult time.

  5. Joyce and John, So sorry to hear of the passing of your father Joyce.

    Our prayers to all of you. God will welcome him!
