Condolences and prayers for his family and friends. I was so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. We met at Koger $ Boxill in the late 70’s. We worked at various firms over the following years. Always nice to see him and hear of his family. He was a good man. He will be missed by many.

Our deepest sorrow and prayers to Karen and your family. I first met Jeff when we worked together at Koger & Boxill in the late 70's. I remember going to visit when he moved to Denver in the early 80's, working for Stone & Webster. Somehow he talked me, this young Louisiana man into skiing... without a boat... down a freaking mountain! That 1st trip became one of many, which later on, included bringing our future wives, both named Karen. Those winter vacations came to an end once we started having families of our own. We always look forward to seeing Jeff & Karen's Christmas cards in the mail, reading about the Harris family's exploits and accompishments for the year. I was lucky to see a few ball games at Alex Box with Jeff and our Friday lunch outings to Brew-Bacher's, Sammy's, or Superior Grill talking about LSU, politics, the stock market, but mostly talked about our kids. How proud he was of Alix, Jason, Nick, and Tim. We sure will miss you. You are always in our hearts.

The Landry Family, John, Karen, and Carel Lynn

“O that in the Grave you would conceal me . . . You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” (Job 14:13, 15) Job was confident that his God would miss him and would long to restore him to life.

Soon, God will do just that​—for Job and countless others—​when this earth is transformed into a paradise. (Luke 23:42, 43) “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29) Job will see that promise fulfilled. He will have the prospect of regaining “his youthful vigor,” and his flesh will forever remain “fresher than in youth.” (Job 33:24, 25) The same will happen to all who respond with appreciation to God’s merciful provision of a resurrection to life on earth.

If you have suffered the loss of someone dear to you, the information we have discussed may not completely take away your grief. But by meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going.​—1 Thessalonians 4:13.
