May God continue to comfort and guide you during this difficult time; and may the "peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your heart and your mental powers". Philippians 4:7.

My condolences to the family - It was Pat who first appointed me to the Southport Lodge officer corp. He always had that warm smile, the same one he wears in uniform above. It was always a pleasure to talk with him - a very positive person. We went to the same church in So Cal for awhile, and while he made it back to Kenosha, I too have moved on, this time to Texas. Our thoughts and prayers to Marie and his children, may he rest in peace. Sincerely, Randy Upright PM.

It is with great sorrow that I am sending my condolences on your recent loss. As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, I and would like to share a scripture that has benefited me and many people in time of grief. God reassures us of something wonderful in the Bible at Acts 24:15. It says, "There is going to be a resurrection." Along with God's promise to us at Revelation 21:3, 4 of sorrow, death, and pain being done away with permanently.

It is my hope that this bit of information is of comfort to you. Please be sure to find further information regarding the resurrection at: JW.ORG

May God be with you.
