    To the Family of Jim Terry: I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you all during this difficult time. Losing the people that we love so much is never easy. I hope you will be comforted as I have been in knowing that through the death of his Son, our Loving Heavenly Father gives us not only a hope of living forever on a paradise earth (Psalms 37:9, 29; Matthew 6:10), but also a hope of seeing those we've lost in death again right here on a cleansed earth (John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15). I hope and pray you will find comfort in the days to come from each other and from our Heavenly Father (Psalm 18:1, 2). www.jw.org provides more words of encouragement regarding the loss of loved our ones.

    As I had the opportunity to speak with you following Mr terrys passing, my visits were always too short. The things we talked about!!! Once he was telling me about someone he trained with in martial arts and we looked him up on my I pad. The last conversation I had with him was especially great. He was on a new diet and finally losing weight. That had been a goal of his for a long time. He was outspoken and opinionated. If you didn't want an honest answer then you had better not ask him the question. I'm thankful to have met him. You remain in my prayers.
