My deep condolences and sympathy to the family of Rupert. May the God of comfort strengthen you. In God’s time, you will all be able to echo Job’s words addressed to the Creator: “You will call, and I myself shall answer you.” Praise be to Jehovah, who yearns to bring back to life all those who are in his memory!—Job 14:15.
Sandra and Wanda,
I am so sorry to hear of Rupert’s passing. When I look at his picture it brings back many memories of climbing up the bus steps to meet his friendly smile and good morning greeting. It was a great way to start the day. Whenever I visited your house he was always the same welcoming person. Hugs to you all as you go through this difficult time.
Sandra, I am so sorry to hear of Rupert’s passing. I just found out today, Sept. 8th. I hope you are feeling better too after your lengthy stay in the hospital. May God bless and keep you in this time of sorrow.
