    We are sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. Words don’t always ease the pain when you are grieving the death of a loved one, but we hope you will find hope in Jesus’ promise of the redirection hope (Acts 24:14) when he will rise up tho sleeping in death (John 11:11) restoring them back to life, on the renewed paradise( John 5:28,29; Luke 24:43) what a wonderful blessing to look forward too. Until then, may Jehovah God (Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort during this grievous time. – Matthew 5:4.

    Dear Sue Ann & family, We are so deeply sorry for your loss of Mike, what a precious and dear friend was to all who knew him and will be sorely missed. After about 30years of absence from Arizona I was working at the Mesa Temple and here was Mike serving in the kitchen and says hello Ann like it was yesterday and that smile that melts your heart, he remembered his old neighbor, he was one of a kind. May the good Lord carry you through this difficult time and may you know of his love for you & all of your family. God Bless you with his Peace. xxx

  • I was sad to hear of Brother Huso’s passing. He was always so nice whenever I’d be at their house with Sonja. He liked to remind that he taught my dad’s Sunday school class when they were younger. Prayers and love for all the Huso family.
