To The Family Of Harold Ernest Kerby Jr.: You have my sincere condolences during this sad occasion. The one and only true living God, who has created all things as we consider reading Psalms 83:18, in the Holy Bible. The Sovereign Lord Jehovah, is the most high over the entire Universe! He deserves Exclusive Devotion from all of mankind and Sacred Service to him, and to him alone.

Death is an uncomfortable subject. Many people prefer not to talk about it. But sooner or later, we must confront it. And the sting of death is sharp and painful. Nothing can fully prepare us for the loss of a parent, a spouse, or a child. A tragedy may strike unexpectedly or unfold relentlessly. Whatever the case, the pain of death cannot be eluded, and it's finality can be devastating. I would like to share a Scripture with you from the Holy Bible at Psalms 90:10-"The span of life is 70 years, Or 80 if one is especially strong. But they are filled with trouble and sorrow; They quickly pass by, and away we fly." Do you have any related questions about Why mankind life span is so short? Or why do we die? I invite you to a website; www.jw.org for accurate knowledge of the Holy Bible and more Bible Truths Guarantee!
