Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help your family at such a stressful time. I’m so grateful your Dad had his family around him. Our thoughts are with the family.

I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of Charles Robinson. There will come a time when death and mourning will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) This is what our loving God, Jehovah, has promised. We also have the hope of seeing our loved ones again. (John 5:28,29) May those verses bring you some comfort in your time of mourning.
