My sincere condolences to your family during this time of sorrow, may your special memories help you in the days ahead to cope. May you find comfort from God's promise of a future resurrection. Jesus said, "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Until this promise is fulfilled may you draw close to God because he cares for you.--John 5:28,29
