  1. Years ago, I had the pleasure of knowing Jose’s sisters and even meeting Jose’s father on several occasions – I came upon this tragic news and, with much of a heavy heart, I would like to offer my deepest and most sincere sympathies to the Antongiorgi family for this grievous misfortune. And though I never knew Jose, my prayers are with him as well as his loved ones. Vaya con Dios. ~ Danni B

  7. Dear Family of the late Jose Alberto Antorgiogi, III, I am sending this letter with a message of hope to encourage you. I became aware of your loss in a recent obituary. It is always painful when someone close to you dies. Often a person€™s first reaction is shock, disbelief and even sometimes denial. The death of a close family member can and often does change your entire life. You might think that you will never see them again. The Bible holds out a hope for all of us and our loved ones. In the Bible book of Acts we read of a resurrection. There it says €œI have hope toward God, which hope these men themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.€ Many might think this sounds to good to be true. In fact if someone were to be resurrected as in the case of Jesus friend Lazarus what kind of life could they hope for, perhaps to enjoy themselves but yet they would still experience problems in there lives. What kind of future can we look forward to? The Bible book of Revelation says €œAnd he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.€ God originally created the earth as a paradise and put man on it under his rule. We obviously don€™t live in a paradise today. The Bible tells us how the earth will soon be transformed into a paradise where mankind will live forever. No longer will we have to worry about suffering, pain, sickness and most of all death. If you would like more information about these Bible promises, please contact Jehovah€™s Witnesses. Each Sunday at 1:00 PM, there are timely Bible discourses on a variety of subjects. Our Kingdom Hall is located at 301 Beryl Street Redondo Beach, CA. Your Neighbor Upcoming Public discourses: Sunday April 29, 2001. €œChoose your associates wisely!€ Sunday May 6, 2001. €œEvidence of God in the World around us!€
