Lisa, I am so sorry I didn't know about your loss. Your dad was an old, old friend of my husband Bill, as you know, and they always shared a laugh or a funny story when they saw each other. I hope they are sharing a laugh or two now in Heaven.
Love, Gloria Champion and family

So sorry about the loss of your loved one. Losing someone we love can be the most difficult thing a person must endure. It is a comfort to know that God has promised a resurrection of all who have died. He has a “yearning” to restore our loved ones back to life. Please read Job 14:14,15. For more information and comfort, please go jw.org.

Uncle Kenny was without a doubt the funniest person that I have ever met. His ability to tell funny story and make everyone laugh was a unique gift. Humor is something that connects us all and provides some solace in challenging and difficult times. I always smile and chuckle when I recall his humorous tales that usually involved him as a central character. Thank you for all the laughs my uncle and may you keep the Mitchells in heaven entertained for eternity. James Mitchell
