    Sorry to read of the passing of this young lad, in the future Jehovah God promises that no resident will say I am sick, (Isaiah 33:24) and we will be united with our loved ones in the resurrection hope, (Acts 24:15).

    Deeply sorry to hear the loss of David. I still remember spending Christmas with him and your family in 2006, thanks to your family’s kind hospitality indeed. That was one of the fondest memories I’ve had in Canada.

    May peace be with you and your family during these difficult times and may David rest peacefully in God’s arms (I’m sure he does).

    Warmest regards,
    Viv *hugs*
