From Janice Ingram

Sender Message Janice Ingram Information Related to your TWS Remembrance Profile #51412      My family lived across the street from Bobby Joe and his family from the summer of 1958, until our move to public housing sometime in 1964 -- approximately 6 years. I remember Bobby Joe as tall, slim, warm and friendly, with a great smile and sense of humor. He was closer to my brother, who was a little closer in age, but my entire family liked him very much. Our move happened approximately the year before Bobby Joe went to Viet Nam, and the entire little community was devastated at his death. He is the single person that I personally knew who was killed in that war, and it is still very painful. I can remember his face clearly, and I hope that I will never forget him. We all have our own ideas about death. I personally am comforted because I believe that I may see Bobby Joe, and many others that I have had the privilege of knowing in this life, again. Why? Because I believe what the Bible says. While the Bible indicates that a special few were invited to go to reside in the heavens to rule with Christ, they are the exception. The vast majority of people will reside on and care for the earth (the meek shall inherit the earth, Psalm 37:11, 29), and for the other creatures inhabiting it, as subjects of God's kingdom -- the kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for in the model prayer (Lord's Prayer - Matthew 6:10). This was Jehovah God's original plan for man, and there is no indication that it has changed. (Rev. 5:9, 10/Rev. 14:3; Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 2:15) My belief and hope is that the Bible is true, and that those who have died are in a condition similar to before they were ever born; they have no knowledge of anything. When they are resurrected it will be as if they had slumbered in a long, peaceful, sleep before being awakened. Rest well, Bobby Joe. Hope to see you soon in the resurrection. Janice I. Washington, DC
