    Dear Family,
    Such great sorrow when we lose someone in death. The scriptures plainly states that death is “the last enemy” will be destroyed.(1 CORINTHIANS 15:26) What strength and comfort we can draw from the knowledge of the resurrection hope.(JOHN 5:28,29) And how glad we can be that our dead love ones ,who are in God’s memory will awaken from the sleep of death to enjoy all the good things God has in store for those who love him! PSALMS 145:16; Says of him, “You are opening your hand and satisfying the desire of every living thing”.
    Sincerely Yours, Judy L.
