Dear Wagoner Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Times like this can be very difficult to deal with. At times, you may feel like there is no one to turn to. You may even feel like no one understands your pain. But there is one person we can turn to that can help us through all of our trials. Yes, God can help you during this difficult time. Pray to him constantly and he will help you. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Isa. 26:19)

God strengthens us by giving us the "power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Nahum 1:7 God is "a stronghold in the day of distress, and is mindful of those seeking refuge in him". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 29:11; Isaiah 40:31) jw.org

My love, Prayers & condolences to William's wonderful family. He & his brother Marshall were my first bosses at Wagoner's Jewelers during the mid 1960's. I will always remember him in such a special way. Blessings to each of you. He was such wonderful man to know.

Sincerely,

Carolyn Holmes (Elliott) - Northern VA
