Celebrating the life of Herbert W. Dickens
Thank you for signing Herbert W. Dickens's Guestbook
You have my deepest sympathies. Losing a loved one in death brings pain and tears. But, please know that one day this will all end. Revelation 21:4 states:And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. May Jehovah strengthen the family during this time.

My deepest condolences to the family on your loss. I remember meeting Mr. Dickens many years ago after returning to the USA from Germany. Mike & Janet had lived upstairs from Mark & me in Sickershausen, Germany for a while. Though I didn't know him well, I remember his friendliness and humor. I know he will be missed and fondly remembered by many.
