I am so sorry .to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my dear mother,
and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8
" The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away
the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4 we find God's
promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn
to t.he website at: www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)

I'm really sorry to hear of Donald's passing. I enjoyed working with him at Walmart. He always had a joke or saying something to make you smile.
