Thank you for signing Rev. Dr. Donald Lewis Watson, Sr's Guestbook
We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (God) 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". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Isaiah 33:24; 1 Corinthians 15:26) jw.org

To The Watson Family...I am just learning of the news of Dr. Watson's transition. I briefly met Dr Watson and his mother in 1968 when I visited his home church in Bethlehem, Pa....and later met his family while he was teaching here in Raleigh. His dedication to education, and his spirituality will be remembered.
May he rest in the arms of the Lord.

The Bible is the source of all comfort it offers a Real Hope of being reunited with our loved ones. Acts 24:15 assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection," John 5:28-29 speaks about "the hour coming in which all those in the Memorial Tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out. God has resurrected humans in the past one account well known is found at John 11:39-44, but the Bible reports 8 instances of humans who were brought back to life on Earth. God (Psalm 83:18) is going to undo death by means of the resurrection even at Psalm 37:29 it tells us that "the righteous will possess the Earth and they will Live Forever on it," what a wonderful blessing and promise from God. Not only will he resurrect our loved ones sleeping in death but we will have forever with them. Isiah 33:24; 25:8 and Revelation 21:4 I hope brings you comfort. Please accept my condolences I am sorry for your loss.

Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And 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". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
