    Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. There is a void that cannot be replaced. The life insurance we buy is really preparation for death. But the life insurance Jehovah God offers is the destroying of death itself and all the things we can think of that causes it. He will do this through His Kingdom that His Son Jesus Christ is King of. We can gain comfort now through the Bible. And in the very near future we will hold our love ones again. We all will live happy healthy lives forever in exquisite delight and in an abundance of peace here on earth.

    My deepest sympathy goes to all of the family but especially to Betty and Linda (CARL)’s aunt Lena Mary. I only learned of Bob’s death today while doing some family research on Linda’s family. I have the fondest memories of several visits Linda and I had with Uncle Bob and Aunt Lena Mary.
    May God comfort you all.
