To the friends and family. I'm so sorry for your loss. In John 5:28, 29 these scriptures are very comforting, so I hope it brings joy and peace to know what our father Jehovah God has planned for us in the future. It saids,"Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice, and come out. Those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.
