Extending my deepest condolences to the family. Our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow. You can take comfort in the words of Jesus when he compared death to sleep and resurrected his friend Lazarus who had been dead for four days. John 11:11-14 thus showing what he can do on a grand scale in the near future for all of those resting in the memorial tombs (God’s Psalms 83:18 memory ). Jonn 5:28, 29. We can also look forward to the time when “no resident will say I am sick”. Isa. 33:24.
