Expression of Sympathy Apr 19 2018 12:00 AM

My deepest condolences to the Holloway family and friends for the loss of your loved one Glenn. When we lose a loved one in death it brings nothing but grief pain and sorrow that's because Jehovah God Psalms 83:18 never planned for us to die. Very soon his son Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under Jesus Christ Kingdom rule Daniel 2:44 that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord's Prayer Matthew 6:10 no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.
