I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Brother King very well, but his dad and I were very close friends. I am sure you will miss him for a while. But soon he will likely be back, alive and well. You can ask yourselves, "What's the first thing I am going to say to him when he is resurrected?" Don't forget anything that is happening because he's going to want to know everything that took place while he was gone. My great love and my prayers to Jehovah in your behalf are for you. Brother Stephen Floyd, River Road congregation.
