To the family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the knowledge that “there is going to be a resurrection,” as the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) By meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible, may you find real hope and the strength to keep going. (1 Th 4:13,14) Deepest sympathy.
Your mom was a great lady, a warrior for Christ, a champion for her church, a wonderful example of the kind of person we should all strive to be. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, now and in the days ahead.
Sending Our Love,
Bob & Cindy Dunivan
