|Rosemary sorry to hear this may God give you peace at this time.|
|We are so very sorry for your loss! Feelings of despair can be
overwhelming at this time. We pray that “the Father of tender
mercies, and the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) will
give you peace of mind and comfort in your hearts. Acts 24:15
says that “there is going to be a resurrection” and Job 14:14,
15 shows that God has a longing to resurrect his friends! We
are so grateful that our loving God looks forward, as much as
we do, to reuniting us with our loved ones. |
