Celebrating the life of Dr. Fred Reese Stowe, Jr.
Thank you for signing Dr. Fred Reese Stowe, Jr. 's Guestbook
My deep condolences go to the Stowe family on the loss of your precious loved one. Losing a loved one is never easy. The emotional pain & emptiness is so real. But, I would like to share what helped us when our daughter fell asleep in death and recently my beloved husband of 50 years.
It was indeed the gift that the Most High God gave to each & everyone of us. And that is His written Word the Bible. In it contains many many words of comfort. I would like to share what has and is helping me. Please, notice God's son Jesus comforting view of death. At John 11:11-14 it brings out that Jesus viewed death as one sleeping. And not that one is here or there. I wondered will I see my loved ones again? And from the Scriptures the answer is "yes."
Please, notice these few Scriptures: Isaiah 33:24(No more sickness) Revelation 21:4(No more pain, sorrow or death) John 5:28, 29(the Resurrection hope). And, it says where at Psalm 37:11 & Psalm 37:29 brings out how long that will last. As you ponder over these few Scriptures may it bring you some comfort knowing the Most High God will fulfill His promises(Psalm 83:18 & Titus 1:2).
Sent in deep sympathy,
Please, feel free to contact me or visit jw.org for more comforting words from God's gift to you.

Hello Stowe Family,I'm a neighbor living in Fayetteville.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too well know, the grief of losing love ones and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us.Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort, at John 5 : 28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.

We send heartfelt sympathies to Fred's family. He was a longtime valued friend of our family. He brought our daughter Caroline into this world on Christmas Day of 1979. Steve spent many happy hours in the fields and on the golf course with Fred. Our children called him Uncle Fred. Under that carefree grin was a brilliant and compassionate man. He will live forever in our treasured memories. We are sad that we will be unable to join you at the service tomorrow as Steve will undergo scheduled cataract surgery during the same time in Wilmington. You will be in our hearts and prayers as we bid farewell to our friend...Love and hugs, Steve and Gayle

Sorry for the loss of your loved one. John 5:28, 29 assures Jesus will restore life to those who has died. Revelation 21:3, 4 gives further assurance death will be swallowed up forever. This is a comforting thought knowing your loved one is in God's memory. Hope this brings comfort.
