Dear family, I only heard yesterday that uncle Bertrand had died. Sincere Christian participation in the passing of uncle Bertrand. He was my godfather when I was born in Canada in 1958. Too bad that we had so little contact with each other all the years. Much strength to all of you. Many greetings, Ray Clincke and family from Ruiselede, Belgium.

To the family and friends of Bertrand Clincke ,I give my deepest condolences. I would like to share a comforting thought from the bible at Acts 24:15 which says: And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. If you would like to know more about the condition of the dead and the resurrection hope, Go to our website JW.org.
