Not sure what to say?

To the family,although death comes,it's never welcomed because it is not natural.Our GOD in heaven didn't purpose us to die.Therefore he has provided a way that we can conquer death.This is by means of his son JESUS CHRIST.He has said that he is opening his hand and satisfying the desire of every living thing.(psalm 145:16)


You have my deepest sympathy. May good memories provide solace for your family during this challenging time; and may God provide you with the assurance that you will see your loved one again in paradise. John 17:3

Your towering intellect and humanist Marxism will be sorely missed. y condolences to Marlene

Tu pensamiento seguira siempre vivo ..Mucho amor donde sea que estés de tu vecino Pepe..

thanks Eric

Though it has been said Mr. Hobsbawm does not beleive in God words of comfort is always helpful to those close to him. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness comfort your hearts and make you firm in every good deed and word.

A man of courage and conviction. I doff my hat for this truly rare gem.
