would like to express my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Hoyer. May Jehovah God continue to provide comfort during this difficult time -2 Corinthians 1:3,4. And may the scripture at Acts 24:15 provide you comfort in knowing that a real hope of being reunited with your loved one is God’s promise.

Cal was very loving brother and we had many happy times together. Born together during WWll our parents took very good care of us where we visited with our mother’s many brothers and sisters. He visited me a St John’s college in Annapolis, Md in 1961 to tell me of his connection with Urve his upcoming wife.

My deep condolences to the Moyer family, I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus view of death. I would like to share it with you from the gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us. His written word the Bible in the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14. Please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death. Written to you in deep sympathy, Sissy
