    To the family of Charles Baker:
    I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of Mr. Baker. Death is a very painful enemy, in fact the bible at 1Corinthians chapter 15 verse 26 says it’s man last enemy, that’s because it will be removed out of the human family after sin is wiped out. After that ALL mankind will be able to live on earth in a paradise in peace with no fear sickness or death or war! That’s why when Jesus could promise the man dieing next to him that he would be with him in PARADISE. Please read Luke chapter 23 verse 42,43. I’m a full-time minister and several times a week I preach to others just as Jesus did, about Gods Kingdom, which is a government ruled by almighty god in the hands of his son Jesus,not imperfect corrupt humans. If you like to learn please respond to this e-mail of speak to any of Jehovah’s Witness when they come by your home.
    sincerely Dean Wells
