  5. S. Haney says:

    Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your mother/grandmother. May your cherished memories and the warmth of family and friends help ease the pain of your loss. God is the source of all comfort (2Cor.1:3,4) and he gives you the comfort and strength you need during your time of grief. The scriptures tell us that soon the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out (John 5:28,29). Re- flecting on God's word, the Bible, and his promise of a resurrection give us an excellent hope for the future.
