    To the Briscoe family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one John.
    In God’s Psalms 83:18 word the Bible is a wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death, to be fulfilled very soon by his son Jesus Christ a resurrection back to life for both the righteous and the unrighteous Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29.
    Right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21: 1-5.

    To Betty and Briscoe family. Jake was a man I had immense respect for. Had the pleasure of meeting him and family when my family moved to DC in the early 70’s. My dad thought the world of Jake too. I remember some great “philosophical” conversations on the side of a tractor or combine. Jake had an incredible sense of humor that always brought a smile and I still laugh about times with Jake. Thanks Lord for my letting my path cross Jake’s.

  4. To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that John has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God’s Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.
