  1. To the family…
    May our heavenly Father give you all the needed comfort, strength and peace to help you to get through each day until the fulfillment of his Kingdom promise at John 5:28,29, ‘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.’
    You can be sure that all the promises of God will then be fulfilled. God said: ‘I have even spoken it…I shall also do it.’ – Isaiah 46:11.
