In the book of "JOB" a question was asked. "If a person dies, will they live again?" The question was answered for us when Jesus Christ rose from the dead, paying a debt that we all owe and could never pay ourselves. Aunt Anna will be missed, but only for a short time, because all who know and love God will see her again, for she is with Him. Love and miss you Aunt Anna, Neal & Carole Gracey
