The loss of our dear friend and coworker is very sad. May the Lord be with their family as they have truly lost “a gentle man quote.

So sorry for your loss. I knew both Jay and your mother Johnnie. Our family lived
just across from them in Cactus, Tx. many years ago. My brother Jerry was a good
friend of Chris. My brother Mike and I were playmate of Speedy. (Cecil). Lots of
good memories. Sending prayers and thoughts your way

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I hope you may find comfort at Revelation 21:4, “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.” We can look forward to the time when God will take away all reasons for distress and he even gives us a hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) If you’d like to learn more about this beautiful hope, feel free to visit JW.org.
