    Tyrone and I were so blessed to have know Jim these past few years. Jim and Tyrone spent many hours talking to each other by phone. They encouraged each other greatly as they talked about being related and shared their thoughts about their declining health.

    There are no words that can ease your pain right now. I hope in the days and months ahead you will find comfort in God’s promises that soon he will do away with death and will restore our dead loved ones to life here on earth under much better conditions. (Isaiah 25:8; 26:19; Psalm 37:11, 29) Until that time let your memories take you back and make you smile, let prayer bring you peace and comfort, and the support from your family and friends help you through this very difficult time.
