I am so sorry for your loss. During difficult times such as these, we all need some comfort. I can say that I have and still am able to find peace of mind knowing that Jesus will soon "call out to all those in their memorial tombs and they will hear his voice and come out."-John 5:28,29 May this bring you peace as we anxiously await this momentous day. With Christian love and deep respect.
