Celebrating the life of Rev. Leroy Smith, Jr.
Thank you for signing Rev. Leroy Smith, Jr.'s Guestbook
I am a Bible student. I read about your lose and wanted to offer my condolences. I will not be able to speak with you personally because I am disabled. I do, however, have some important information I want to share with you. A sample is contained in a tract that can be found on our website jw.org. "Can the dead really live again?" We all have lostsomeone close to us and wonder if we will ever see them again, which raises that question. It is our priviledge to share in a work that is being done by volunteers in upwards of 200 lands. In all these lands people are being invited to benefit from a program that helps them learn the Bible's answers to such important questions as: Why do we grow old and die? What is the purpose of life? How can you find real happiness? These are other topics of discussion available to you as well. We engage in this activity because we are genuinely interested in our neighbors. Our work is not commercial. It is our hope that someday soon we will be able to talk to you personally. Please feel free to get in touch with us at our website jw.org. Videos and other literature are available visit anytime.

We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
