I am so sorry for loss. It is never easy to deal with the loss of someone we love. But by looking beyond ourselves to the bible we find support. I have been helped by 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 where it says, "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God"
Condolence: Dear Noel -- My heart goes out to you. It was so sad to learn from Ed Thompson that Tony has gone on to his new life in Christ. I have so many memories of Tony -- including the lunchtime celebration of his 30th birthday at a bistro in Pleasantville!
Tony was an outstanding editor, who taught me the fine art of editing for Reader's Digest. Tony was Executive Editor on my first issue as Issue Editor. Not only did he guide me through that issue, but challenged me to continue to improve my skills. I shall never forget him.
Noel, you will remain in my thoughts and prayers in the months ahead.
Much love, Nina
