Gerry & Family,
My thoughts are with you and your family. I am sure your father is very proud of you. When we talked I could feel how much you love him and the excellent and loving care you took. I know these are tough moments, however we always need to keep looking forward. All the best to all of you.

We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7) jw.org
