My condolences are going out to the Houser family. I am so sorry for the loss of your love one and my prayers and thoughts are of you. May your warm memories be a source of comfort and may you find comfort in our God who is the greatest comfort. He promises to end the enemy death and we have the hope of seeing our love ones again.

Offering my sincere condolences to the Houser Family. May your fond memories of your dear loved one; help to ease the grief. May the "peace of God that surpasses all understanding" comfort you in this time of sorrow.-Philippians 4:7 — D Howard (, MD)

Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Larry Houser. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Houser, reflect on the time when sickness, death & sorrow will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19) May God’s word provide you the comfort to endure now and in the days to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises! A. Marie Casey (formerly of Lake Havasu , AZ)

To the Family , I would like to express how sorry to hear of your loss. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. And when it happens, the thought of never again being able to talk to, laugh with, or hold your loved one can be most difficult to bear. That pain is not necessarily erased by being told that your loved one is up in heaven. Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. (Luke 23:43; John 3:16; 17:3; compare Psalm 37:29 and Matthew 5:5.) Since Jesus made the promise, it is safe to assume that he is willing to fulfill it. These promises have consoled me when my father died. Hopefully, they can provide some hope and comfort to your family. Frederick N (, SC)

Dad loved his family,friends. He enjoyed golfing, hunting & woodworking. I could write a long letter telling how much dad will be missed, the impression he made on all of our lives & the stories we will share for generations. But instead, my English class has inspired me to share a list of a few a-z adjectives that describe "PA" ;) ADVENTUROUS,AFFECTIONATE,AMBITIOUS,COMPASSIONATE,CONSIDERATE,COURAGEOUS,DILIGENT,EMPATHETIC,FRIENDLY,FRANK,GENEROUS,GREGARIOUS,INVENTIVE,INTERESTING,LOVING,MOTIVATED,NIFTY,NOBLE,NUTTY,OUTGOING,OUTSTANDING,PASSIONATE,PERSISTENT,RELIABLE,RESOURCEFUL,SINCERE,STORYTELLER,SYMPATHETIC,TALKATIVE,TEASING,TRUSTWORTHY,WOODWORKING,WITTY.

Pa,you will be missed more than you know.. One of the many wonderful characteristics my father had, was that he was a "family man" As a child, it was mandatory that we always spent Sundays together.. Usually, it was mass in the morning, followed by a car drive to enjoy the scenery, or picnic somewhere out doors.(As he loved the out doors) And sometimes, church was followed by yard work & pulling weeds.. But at the end of the day, we were still all together as a family.. I am so grateful for him and all the special memories and times spent together. Love you always.. — Lisa Patterson (Hollister, CA)

My heart and prayers go out to the Houser Family and especially my niece Janet. Larry was one of my favorite nephews because we always try to get the best of each other...he had such a great sense of humor. He truly will be missed. May he now rest in peace. Love to all NANCY SKIDMORE (Salinas, CA)

To the Houser Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May fond memories of moments shared with Larry, help to ease the sorrow. May the God of all comfort, who "heals the brokenhearted," strengthen you during this difficult time.-Psalm 147:3 — D Howard (, MD)
