My condolences to the Fitz family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.

We've only known Don for about the last four years. He and his wife, Dorothy, joined our Tai Chi class and were regular attendees. Don loved Tai Chi, saying it helped his strength and balance. Due to his hearing problems, he and Dorothy stopped attending St. Barnabas several years ago. When I flagged to Don a hearing device that the church offers, he came and tried it, and it worked! They were able to start attending church again, joining the Theophilites Sunday School class and regularly attending services.
We loved Don and will miss him. See you on the other side, Don!
