When I look back on my trips as a kid to West Virginia , I have vivid memories of Jimmy’smile. Jimmy always smiled as a kid and as an adult. And without him, lightbulb sales will be on the upswing, because there are going to be a lot of dim rooms in all of our lives. Though I didn’t get to see him often, he made up for it when I did see him, and he will be sorely missed. I know how devastating his death is on Judy, Jeanann, and his entire family. And you have my sincere, heartfelt sympathy. All of you and, of course, Jimmy are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless. . .

I am so sorry for your loss. May "the God of all comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God's Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
