    Very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing, we will miss his company at our cabin. He has been a good friend since we became his neighbors at Crooked Lake 17 years ago. Our best wishes to Dee, children and his whole family.

    My sympathies to the Johnson family. Very sorry for your loss. The loss of a loved one brings us feelings of anguish and grief, but you can find comfort and hope in God’s word, the Bible. John 5:28,29 says, “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones in a Paradise on earth where “death is no more.” (Revelation 21:3,4)

    My sympathies to the Johnson family. Very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is a devastating experience, and it can leave us crushed in spirit. However, at Isaiah 57:15, here Almighty God Jehovah says, “I reside in the high and holy place, but also with those crushed and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of those being crushed.” God notices your suffering, and through his purpose he has provided a beautiful resurrection hope that you can have faith in. (John 5:28,29)
