Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
To the Family of Mr. Deluca William, With sincere sympathy in the loss of your loved one. Beautiful promises of hope and comfort are contained in God's Word (2 Corinthians 1:3). There exist no other source with more comforting promises than the Holy Scriptures. Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted Matthew 5:4. As you reflect on the life of Mr. Williiam, remember his joys and blessings. I pray you are not too sad. Surround yourselves with those who love his, share fond memories this too is a source of comfort. Sincerely
Gladys Pyatt
To the family of William DeLuca Please accept my sincere condolences. I have taken comfort knowing that God . . . will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain.????Revelation 21:3, 4 The Bible, however, holds out a much different hope. As we have previously noted, the Scriptures indicate that it is possible to be reunited with your dead loved one in the near future, not in an unknown heaven but right here on earth under peaceful, righteous conditions. And at that time humans will have the prospect of enjoying perfect health, and they will never have to die again. ??But surely that is wishful thinking!?? for some may say. For words of encouragement please go to JW.org Sincerely, Roberta
