Condolence: Even though I had moved down here to Florida over a year ago, I wasn’t that out of the loop that I wasn’t called to be notified of John’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his children and family during this difficult time.
I originally met John through my relationship with of his friends, as well as his first wife, Holly. Thoughts of all the good times he and I had the opportunity to experience together after reuniting from his employment at the Spitfire Grille, I had hired John to help me back in the kitchen. He was a very hard worker and always counted on to make me laugh. Some of situations we got ourselves wrapped up in are truly ones that I’ll forever remember. I’m sorry that I’m unable to attend his services and pay my respect in person, therefore I’m grateful that I can feel a message here. God Speed, my friend, God Speed.
Condolence: Please accept my condolences for the passing of your dear loved one. When someone we love dies, the heartache and grief can be great. I hope that you can be comforted knowing that God cares for you and sees your pain. (1Peter 5:7). “He is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalms 34:18). May you find comfort and relief during this grievous time, as you cherish the precious memories of John.
Condolence: My condolences to the Noel families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear John. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.

Condolence: I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved John. This is never easy to face, in fact death can be viewed as an enemy. That's how our Creator Jehovah views it as according to 1 Cor. 15:26; which says, "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." May you find comfort in knowing this and that he has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information.
