Dear Chauncey Family: Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort in the words found at John 5:28,29, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the future He will also do away with death.(Revelation 21:4) This gives us the hope of being reunited with our loved ones forever. Until then I hope the memories of Edward and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
