Dear Mrs. Gurkas, I am very sorry for the passing of your husband..... Bo. For several months now I have been thinking of him and didn't quite know why. Perhaps since the day's in Brielle to the present, I have been reminded of him every time I see the energizer bunny. I googled his name and was sad to hear of his passing. His determination, strong family values and faith made an impression on me as a young man and I will never forget him for those values to live by. A man from Kearny, NJ who had a dream and a plan to became a rancher in Colts Neck, a beautiful life! Karen once told me that you said, " the outside of a pot should be as clean as the inside of a pot." Something I practice and a metaphor for how to live a life. I thank your husband and you for strong, warm, memories. Our prayers for peace and grace are with you and your family. Ernie Kovats

William’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5: 28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/wp20140101/
