    Dear Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss, death is a very sad thing to happen to anyone. Did you know death was no part of Gods purpose? And that La Rue has a hope of a resurrection and to be brought back perfect on a paradise earth ? Having lost a loved one myself, wouldn’t it be comforting to know that there will be a time when Jesus calls everyone out of the memorial tombs and those who did good things to a resurrection of life…For those blessed by him will themselves possess the earth…And then God will swallow up death forever and will certainly wipe the tears from all faces.(JOHN 5:28,29)(PSALMS 37:22)(ISAIAH 25:28)
    Sincerely Yours, Judy L.
