Marianne, Joanna, Michelle and Joe,

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Sometimes we say She lived a good long life. However, no matter how long one lives, it is never long enough. Be assured of the keeping of this wonderful promise from God: The righteous will possess the earth and live forever on it. There IS going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. (Acts 25:15) Imagine awakening to a righteous new world where death has been eliminated. Now this is the way God intended it to be from the start. His original purpose will be fulfilled. Please take heart in these beautiful promises.
