Dear Crispino Family, Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in your memories and draw strength in God's promised hope that someday you will be reunited (John 5;28,29). This promised future is one that will bring great joy and will be one of perfect health and everlasting life where "where the former things have passed away" (Rev 21:4, Psalms 37:29). So may you during this most difficult time find some comfort in knowing that Jehovah God does care and He does hear our cries. With most sincere condolences.

Dear Nick and family,

I've included a well-known verse that may offer some little comfort in your feelings of great loss.

Greg Hofmann

“I cannot say, and I will not say
That she is dead – she is just away!
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
She has wandered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming how very fair
It’s needs must be, since she lingers there;
And you – O you who the wildest yearn
For the old-time step and the glad return,
Think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of There as the love of Here;
Think of her still as the same, I say:
She is not dear – She is just away!”

Tony and family, I'm so very sorry to hear about your mom's passing. She put up a good fight, for sure, and was blessed to have you all in her corner, fighting with her, loving her... and eating her homemade cookies. My thoughts are with you.
