I would like to send my condolences to the family of Mr Cottle. I know losing someone you love in death is very sad but we can all look forward to the time when the almighty God tells us that he will do away with all things that causes pain and suffering  even death. (Rev.21 3,4)I am so sorry for your loss.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your loved one.  A loved one lost can grieve the heart and make us long for the day when Jehovah will keep the promise he made to us at Revelation 21:3,4 about no more pain, sorrow or even death.  As each of you grieve for your dear loved one, may the memories you shared with Horace be a source of comfort now and in the days ahead.
