    My sincere condolences to Connie’s dear loved ones. And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. Acts 24:15. The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it. Psalms 37:29. Jehovah God hates death and has promised a wonderful future for those who have fallen asleep in death. And what a happy time this will be on earth. If you would like to know more about what the Bible promises for life in heaven and life on earth, go to:
