Thinking about the family at this time, rejoicing in the memories and our reunion some day. We appreciated getting to know Delbert and family when he was a roomie with my Dad, Jim, at Arbutus. Peace and comfort to you all.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Sometimes we may say Delbert lived a good long life.However, no matter how long one lives, it is never long enough. Be assured of the keeping of this wonderful promise from God: The righteous will possess the earth and live forever on it. There IS going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. (Acts 25:15) Imagine awakening to a righteous new world where death has been eliminated. Now this is the way God intended it to be from the start. His original purpose will be fulfilled. Please take heart in these beautiful promises. Please visit jw.org for further information regarding the beautiful future that lies just ahead.

Janny and Judi,
Please accept our deepest condolences in the loss of your father. We will keep you both in our prayers.
Death is not the end, it is only the beginning for those who have passed away, and a PAUSE for those they left behind.
I pray you find great comfort in knowing we will all be together again, in the company of our Heavenly Father.
In God's Love,
Phil, Edna and Nick Powell
