My husband, Don Clifton, used to spend hours on saturdays at the recycling center in the shed with Carl, they had a good time chatting about everything. When my husband died in 2007 I will never forget Carl came to pay his respect. He was a good man and my husband loved every Saturday with him. My prayers are with you. Diane Clifton, 58 Shongum Rd.

I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. May God almighty, father of tender mercies and all comfort continue to strengthen you all (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). How eager we all are to see the fulfillment of Gods promise to completely remove death, tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). The Bible also provides assurance of the resurrection hope for our dead loved ones (John 5:25). May these promises from God bring you comfort. You can learn more about Gods purposes at www.jw.org
