To the family of Mr. James Baldwin: I am very sorry for your loss. Yes we are broken when death separates us from our loved one's, but according to Ecclesiastes 9:5 they are just sleeping awaiting the time when they are asked to wake up (John 5:28-29) to Jehovah God's original purpose (Psalms 37:29). May you find comfort in knowing that your loved one is resting safely in His Limitless memory.
