    We just want to express our sympathy on the loss of Mr. Horsley. I don’t even remember how many year that we bought our country eggs from him and his wife. May GOD wrap his arms of comfort around Mrs. Horsley and the rest of the family during this time of sadness. We will be praying for you and the family during this time and for the months to come.

    There, in front of eyewitnesses, Jesus performed an unforgettable resurrection. It was a token of the resurrection that he had already predicted some time prior to this event, a restoration to life on earth under “a new heaven.” On that occasion, Jesus had said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”—Revelation 21:1, 3, 4; John 5:28, 29; 2 Peter 3:13. This is the hope for, Mr. Horsley, as well. I am very sorry for your loss. May God’s Word seek to comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl
