So sorry to hear of your loss. Back in the '60's, we used to visit our grandparents, Albert and Hilma Flattum, on their farm not far from the Hanson home. (My mother was Dolores Flattum, Morrison.) We used to look forward to hanging out with Claire and Larry when they were done working on the farm. My deepest sympathy. Kathy Morrison Wirak

I would like to offer my sincerest condolences during this difficult time, the loss of a loved one can be a painful experience. I hope you can find a measure of comfort in God's Word the Bible. For example, in Revelation 21:4 it mentions a time that is coming when death will be no more and in John 5:28,29 it says how all those in the memorial tomb will come out. So we will have the opportunity to see our loved ones again. For more information about this topic and much more please visit JW. org.
