A veteran of the United States Navy, Kel had a passion for sailing and racing his sailboat Rascal. One of his fondest memories was competing in the Block Island Race Week for 24 years. He also loved building fine furniture, gardening, home building, and interior decorating.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’d like to share some real hope with you. In Psalms 146:4 tells the condition of the dead. “His breath goeth forth, he returneth to the earth and that very day his thoughts perish.” In Acts 24:15 the bible promises a resurrection of our loved ones back to earth. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, he brought him back to earth. He’s going to do that on a much larger scale in the future. In Psalms 37:11+29 says man will live forever on the earth in peace. That was Jehovah’s original purpose, for man to live forever in the garden of eden. Jehovah’s purpose hasn’t changed. That’s why he gave his son to die for us, John 3:16, so we could have everlasting life. In Revelation 21:4 says there’ll be no more pain or death. Since there’s no pain or death in heaven, those are future conditions on earth under God’s kingdom arrangement. JW.org
