Sorry for your loss

We attended church with Hank and Rita and lost contact with her after Hank died.

She always kept moving forward and looking to the what the next day held.

Have missed talking with her the past few years and getting her point of view on life. Always started out with “ now Sue you know......”

A wonderful person...

We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
