Online Condolences for Donald Hargrove ( March 16, 1933 ~ November 29, 2018)

My sincere condolences for the loss of your parents. I am honored to have know them. They were two of the most amazing people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Kathi Lytle Bare (Helena, MT)

The Hargrove Family, We would like to express our deepest sympathy on the passing of Don. We can only say how much we enjoyed working with and knowing the Senator all these years. Don was always the voice of reason and sanity even in those times of insanity. Don was the consummate gentleman ever the Statesmen. We will all miss him. God Bless and God Speed. — Jim and Diane Cashell (Gallatin Gateway, MT)

To the Family, I am deeply sorry to hear of your loss. Losing my parent has been difficult for me. However, I found this scripture helpful. At 2 Cor 1:3,4 it says: “3Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;4Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” One thing the Bible states that has helped is what Jesus said at John5:28,29: “28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,29And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life;” Hopefully these few texts can help your family during this time as it has for me. Frederick N (, SC)

To the Hargrove Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May your treasured memories of moments shared with your loved one, help to ease the sadness. May the "peace of God that surpasses all understanding" comfort your heart in this time of sorrow.-Philippians 4:7 — D Howard (, MD)

November 29, 2018
Offering my condolence to the family of Donald Hargrove. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Hargrove, reflect on the time when aging, sickness & death 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 & the prayers of others provide you the comfort to endure at this time & each day to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises! A. Marie Casey (formerly of, IN)

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your family member and friend. Words can not express the pain and sorrow you may feel. The God of all comfort understands your pain and is near to those brokenhearted and crushed. He will be a source of comfort to you at this difficult time.- Psalms 34:18; 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. May your hearts find peace and comfort from all those around you. Mignon Lawson (, MT)
