I met Sarah when we were 15, we have shared many years of good times and bad, she was married to my brother at one time and became a true and lifelong member of our family, Sarah was such a loving,caring person, who loved with her whole heart. Her kids and grandkids and great grandson were her world and she loved every minute she got to spend with them . I will miss her so much, and I will treasure all the good times we had together. I love you sis.

Dear Family of Sarah VanBibber,
It is sad that you lost your family member. God never meant for us to die, young or old. His original plan was for mankind to live forever in good health on this earth.
In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were created perfect. Their assignment was to have children and extend the paradise earth wide. Although they lost the opportunity, we know that God arranged for Christ's ransom to give us a personal opportunity to live the life that Adam lost.
But, where is that life to be? There are some who go to heaven, but the Bible also speaks of those who will inherit the earth--the meek ones. At Matthew 5:5 in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, he said "Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth."
What kind of earth? An earth filled with righteousness, and good health for all. (Revelation 21:3-5).
Those who have passed away in death will be brought back to the arms of their loved ones. This is promised by Jesus at John 5:28-29a - "28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.."
What a marvelous prospect! If you want to learn more about these promises, please continue to read your Bible and listen to the words of Christ Jesus and his Father, Jehovah God. Seek out those who praise them.
Sincerely, your neighbor in Grandview, MO
