To The Family Of James Joseph Trabosh Sr.: You have my sincere condolences during this sad occasion. 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.


The Bible explains,easy-to-understand terms the condition of the dead. Let's see what the Holy Bible says at Ecc 9:5-" The living are conscious that they will die,but as for the dead,they they are conscious of nothing at all." Is it possible for the dead to have feelings? Ecc 9:6-" "Theit love and their hat and their jealousy have already already perish,and they have no portion anymore to time indefinite in anything that has to be done under the sun."Note, too that Ecc 9:10-" There is no work nor dividing nor knowledge nor wisdom in "Sheol",the place to which you are going." Sheol in the Hebrew language is " man's common grave. You may have other regaled questions such as: How long will I remain in Sheol? Or will I be resurrected? I have a website: www.jw.org for accurate knowledge of The Holy Bible and more Bible Truths!

Dear George and family,
So very sorry for your loss! Your Dad was an inspiration to so many and my family was grateful for all his dedication with CYO and Nativity Volleyball. Your mom and dad were treasures, now in Heaven together! May your happy memories give you comfort and may your family be blessed with peace during these difficult days ahead. Thinking of you and sorry I can't make it to Mass - you're in my prayers! God Bless!
