    My deepest sympathy for your loss. People will say "Ida lived a long life". No lifespan is long enough when it comes to our dear loved ones. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah feels the same way. He has promised to swallow up death forever, and to bring an end to all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3, 4; Isa. 25:8) May He comfort you during this difficult time.

    We couldn't have asked for a better neighbor. I am going to miss our chats over the backyard fence. He was always so kind to our puppies, who loved to greet him, so he could reach over and pet them. It just won't be the same without you, Len❣
