Pam and I are very sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am sorry for your loss. May reading these scriptures be of encouragement to you. 1 Corinthians 15:26, and John 5:28,29. Psalms 37:10,11,29,and 72:7,8, tell us about the wonderful blessings that wewill be surrounded by, when the above blessings are fulfiled. The bible scriptures sound to good to be true. Just think, if Adam and Eve would not have sinned, mankind would not be suffering sickness and death. The scriptures above help us to see that the God of Love will fulfill his original purpose. This is also based on Isaiah 55:11. I hope that the above scriptures will give you and your family some comfort and hope.
