Sorry for your loss. Chris and I were talking about him last night...about how we would go up there on the weekends when they were kids. Chris would spend the night and they would always play ball. Happy memories of better days.

Dear family members, please accept this note of sincere condolences to your family on the death of your dear loved one James Starke Broome Jr. May you find comfort in the words of Jesus Christ recorded at John 5:28,29 - “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Very encouraging indeed. Know that your Creator Jehovah is aware of your grief and pain and has purposed to remove death forever. That assurance is found at Isaiah 25:8 - “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” These are promises that will be fulfilled toward mankind so you can have hope in a bright future where we can meet and hug our loved ones again. Family members, take courage, take comfort - a change will come and that change will be for the better for all mankind. Once again, sincerest condolences.
Kind regards
Yvette del Pino
