6 Condolences for Jeffrey W. Ellingsworth
Dear Kim & Family,
We do not know why things happen the way they do, all we know is when they do, that we can just go on and live our life out with God and hope for better days & tomorrows. I know this is not easy, but I also know that when we continue to live our life for the good, then our loved ones memory will go on. I will remember all the good things that was in Jeff’s Life and the loving, kind and compassionate person he was when he was with us. My love, prayers & thoughts are with you all. God Bless You. Love, Lesle
I want to offer my condolences to the Ellingsworth family. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death; even Jesus, when Lazarus died, “gave way to tears”(John 11: 35). It pains our Creator, too, and he has promised to bring our love one back to life at Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will rise …Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! …the earth will let those powerless in death come to life” then “he will swallow up death forever …”(Isaiah 25:8). I hope these words give you comfort.
Kim and Family so sorry for the loss f your brother Jeff. The best memories I have of Jeff were back in the day at Indian Landiing when we al hung out. And the parties up at the Slaggs as we called it in white house beach. Were we use to skinny dip and have a great time. Another memorie of Jeff is when we were walking home from Whitehouse in the rain I believe, him with his bottle of Jack I think it was. A cop stopped and asked us where we were going and he actually gave us a ride home no problem back in the day great times. RIP Jeff
I just got word of Jeff’s passing. I am so sorry. Jeff was like a big brother–I idolized him when we were all growing up.
Stacey and I were just talking about him this week. How strange.
Anyway, I hope you and yours are doing well.
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss and I hope that you will be comforted and strengthened by reflecting on the resurrection hope found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15.
Kim – I am so sorry to learn about Jeff. You have had some tuff times and I can understand, time and faith will get you through it. Any thing I can do I am here for you. You will be in my prayers.
