We are so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. She truly was a lovely woman. She will certainly be missed by many. May the family find hope and comfort in God's promise to bring our loved back to life by means of an earthly resurrection (Acts 24:15). He also promises at Isaiah 25:8...And he will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces. These are wonderful promises from our Heavenly Father! We look forward to the day when these promises will be fulfilled. Until that day, may your warm memories of her, help you through the rough days ahead. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
