    My dear brother’s family, I wanted to be there in your time of grief but distance and lack of time prevented it. My prayers are for you to find comfort in knowing that Joe is at rest and no longer tortured by his illness. Please look forward to the day when as Revelation 21:4 says – and he (Jehovah 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.
