    During this difficult time, know that our loving Creator, Jehovah, the "God of all comfort," is "close to the brokenhearted." (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4; Psalm 34:18) So invites you to "throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7) So turn to him and take comfort in knowing that soon "death, is to be brought to nothing." (1 Corinthians 15:26)

    Lil & I were moving to Wilmington back in early 80"s. First person we met was Gale, she made our visit,her view of Wilmington a wonderful and great experience. She was a lovely lady and we loved her right off, Lil bought a home from her, and moved back to N.J. 2 years ago and she tried to locate Gale to sell it with no results. We are sorry for your loss.
