Our deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Moe was a great person and a wonderful dancer who will be missed by many. Moe was always very nice to us at PAJC functions and always made Nancy and me feel welcome. He and Helen were the main reason we became active with the Jitterbug Club. Thanks for the great memories. Gob bless Moe.

Sorry for the loss of your dear loved one Donald. When the enemy death strikes, words are never enough at a time like this, but know that caring thoughts are with you. Find comfort in knowing that God has promised to "swallow up death forever"- Isaiah 25:8, and that “he will resurrect our dear loved ones who have passed away”- John 5:28. (jw.org)
