My condolences to the Devoe family in the loss of your dear loved one. When we experience a death of someone we love, it pains our hearts. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel, and he offers us comfort by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 says: He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. The comforting words at Revelation 21:4 tells us: And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you at this time of bereavement.

Norman you were a good neighbor and respectful guy. I'm going to miss seeing you in the yard waving when I pass by coming home from work. I will never forget the words of encouragement you gave me. You will truly be missed from Remington Park. RIP

It just dont seem real that you are gone. I never got a chance to say how much you meant and how much you taught me. I know we bumped heads alot but at the end of the day you were there for me if I needed you. Thanks for everything you done for me. Rest easy and know that you are and will continue to be truly missed.

Dear Husband in Haven
I thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
And days before that too
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories and your several pictures of you in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part
God has you in his keeping but I have you in my heart!
I will always love you until we meet again.
You loving wife,
Towana

I would like to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one. The death of a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences a person can face. Our loving God Jehovah is aware of this and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. The Bible also reveals that it is God’s purpose to restore the dead to life when he resurrect all those in the memorial tombs (John 5:28,29). Then they will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth free from sickness and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you at this time of bereavement.
