Manuel Duarte passed away peacefully on Thursday February 14, 2019 at the age of 89. He was born on April 23, 1929 in Hartford, CT.

My deepest condolences to the family for their loss. May the many good memories you have of Manuel bring you comfort. The God of all comfort sees the tears brought on by the death of our loved ones Psalms 56:8. He yearns to bring back those sleeping in death Job 14:14,15 to a time when sickness,suffering and death will be no more. Revelation 21:4.

We are so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort, Jehovah, look after you during this most difficult time. In the book of Revelation 21:3,4 there is a beautiful promise he gives where he says that soon will come a time when death, mourning, and tears will be no more. May thoughts and scriptures like this be of comfort to you during this most difficult time.
