Dearest Zimmerman Family, I am very sad to hear of my friend Arthur passing. I first met Arthur in 1970 when we worked at Kroger's supermarket in Laredo Texas. We were 18 years old and we quickly became friends. Arthur was a gentle giant, who always made you feel welcomed, with a good sense of humor. Arthur was a friend who was willing to help out.. I remember him being the SEARS Santa Claus when Sears used to be down town Laredo .I spend lots of time at the Zimmerman home. Mrs. Zimmerman always made all of her children friends feel welcomed . I have many happy memories of my friend Arthur. I will miss my friend. My prayers are with the family. GOD BLESS your family !!!

Reciban nuestras condolencias. Por eso queremos compartir con ustedes el consuelo que Dios nos da mediante las escrituras. Por ejemplo Dios nos dice en su palabra la Biblia en Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 que "limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no sera mas". Y en Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurrección". Entonces vemos claramente que nuestro amoroso creador Jehova Dios muy pronto acabará con toda maldad y todo el sufrimiento.
