    I'm so sorry for your loss. When I lost a loved one in death a few years ago the scriptures Ps. 34:18 and Revelation 21:3,4 really helped me and my family. I hope you can find comfort in these difficult times. My thoughts and prayers will be with you.

    To the family and friends of Mr. Pignotti. Please accept my condolences on behalf of your loss. Jehovah God will be your strength and your rock. Deuteronomy 32:4. He will provide the comfort you need. Cherish the moments you once enjoyed, and He will make you firm. And soon Isaiah 25:8 will become a reality. Where it says " and He will swallow up death forever."
