  7. Bro.Huber was a faithful servant of Jehovah until he passed away. We knew Huber immediately we moved into the primrose congregation of Jehovah’s witnesses; He and his dear loving wife regularly attend the christain meetings and upbuilt the congregation through their encouraging comments. We missed him greatly. May Jehovah be with his family during this difficult time. We hope to see our brother again during the resurrection-
    John 11:25.

    sure hope of the resurrection. May this hope and the warm memories shared continue to soothe your hearts.

  13. Dearest Joan and family. Such shocking news. The loss of one you have loved for so many years, I’m sure has left you shattered and broken. May Jehovah pick up the pieces and slowly mend your broken hearts. I know Jehovah’s loving arms are wrapped tightly around you at this time. How we will miss the sound of his voice giving beautiful Bible readings. “Just around the corner.” Love you dear sister.
