Dear Family our sincere condolences, we are sorry for your loss. I would like to share with you some Scripture that have helped our family during those difficult times. In John 5:28-29 God promises a resurrection in the near future. Revelation 21: 3-4 says that suffering and death will end forever. Isaias 25:8 says that he will swallow up death forever. We have the hope seeing them again soon thank to the promises of God. Sincerely Santos Family, Ocala, Fl.
