My deepest sympathy go out to all the family. It's never pleasant when you lose someone you love in death it's as though your whole world is turned up side down. But there is hope, God promised a hope of the resurrection, please read John 5:28,29. It will be a reality.Sincerely,Artina

Dear Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. It’s never pleasant when you lose someone you love in death, it seems as though your whole world is turned upside down. Losing your loved one and not having that one in your life anymore can be very devastating. It is my hope that you find peace and comfort during this difficult time. I like to share this scripture with you, John 5:28, 29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus] voice and come out, … to a resurrection of life ….” What a joyful day that will be to see your dear loved one again. It will be a reality.

Sincerely,
Artina
