    Sending out prayers to the family. My 9 year old great nephew was one of the children that life was taken. I pray for peace that passes all understanding!

  3. To my cousins and to the family who lost their family members. My wife and I send our condolences, sympathy and prayers. In a time like this we want to give all involved comfort from the scriptures. We hope that the words of Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29. Both gives us hope for the resurrection of our loved ones. May Jehovah keep them in His memory until then. For more spiritual comfort please go to JW.org.
