Peter you were a kind and gentle man. I am happy we got together recently. Thinking of you puts a smile on my face. Thank you for that. May the Duke family accept my condolences and know how much he loved you.

I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection to come according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in scriptures like [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21;3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
My Sincere Condolences.
