Dave, Family and Friends
Very Sad Day! The second loss of a student from my floor at the Academy. Dave touched more lives than he ever realized. He was beloved by all who got to know him. There was so much more for him to accomplish in life. He will be sorely missed by all his D-wing brethren and sisters. You made us laugh and Wonder! Touch Path Touch Path Go To Bed...my dear friend. Rest In Peace - God Bless you Dave.
Family of Mr Bailey,
While I did not know Mr. Bailey, I have experienced the loss of a loved one. It is times like this that reminders of God's promises regarding death and the resurrection serve to provide hope, a measure of peace and comfort. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. God’s word says 'death is an enemy' and promises it will be 'brought to nothing'. (1Corinthians 15:26) Psalm 34:18 says, "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." So, God does care about our pain and grief so much so that he guarantees the restoration of life.
Further, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life...” ( John 11:25) Jesus not only spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he himself was resurrected by his Father and performed many miracles including resurrections. So, all resurrections took place here on earth giving us assurance of what is to come.
God guarantees us that the grief and sorrow we experience is temporary. (Revelation 21:4) Because God is a promise keeper (Titus 1:2), we will have the prospect of seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15) These truths not only provide hope for the future but serve to comfort us even now.
As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Bailey, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family in the days to come.........
Sorry to hear of David''s passing.
I will always honor your memory... u will always be in my heart. My prayers and sympathies go out to the family.
We believe that the concept of service is of enormous value to individuals, communities, and society in general.
