I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know your son Jacob, but the photo of this handsome young man caught my eye and I wanted to express my condolences to you. When death robs us of one we love, we can lean on "the God of all comfort" (2 Cor. 1:3,4) and find hope in His promise to soon undo 'all tears, pain and even death' (Rev. 21:4). Many have found jw.org to be invaluable in answering questions about suffering and the hope for the future. PLEASE know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Your family is in my prayers.
I am so sorry about your loss. Prayers for comfort.
Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. Please know that the whole family is in our thoughts and prayers. Joe & Debbie Morrison
David, Carol, and Tyler, I do not have the words to express my deep sorrow for your loss. I enjoyed so much seeing Jacob and Tyler at the lake and hearing about their great adventures. Your boys are always so kind and helpful to us whether it was building a fence or just hanging out on your porch at the lake. Jacob takes after his Dad and can build or fix anything. I will miss his kind heart and smile. You are all in my prayers and know Jesus is taking care of him now. I pray that you feel his loving arms around you as you face this difficult time. Love you, Brenda and John
