I would like to share a comforting Scripture from God's inspired Word, the Bible with the family. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember Jehovah God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7) jw.org

My heart goes out to the Johnson Family. I work with John for some years, and meet his family in the early 1980s. May God bless you all! JTTaylor.
