May Jesus our God of comfort richly bless you all as you remember and celebrate Mike's life legacy. His memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew him. jwfacts.org has been a valuable resource and we thoughtfully share. 'And He will raise you up on eagles' wings; bear you on the breath of dawn; make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand'.

"And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." (1 Corinthians 15:26) I am so sorry for your loss. God promises that he will soon wipe away and reverse the effects of this enemy that causes so much pain. Your precious husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, and friend will be brought back to you and you will never have to experience the pain of saying a goodbye ever again! (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4,5) Jw.org
