My condolences to the Laskaris family. We can take comfort in the words Jesus said that “all those in the memorial tombs” will be resurrected. (John 5:28). Taking comfort in this promise has brought me much comfort despite losing my loved ones. May you treasure the many wonderful memories shared with Beatrice and look forward to the ones to come. I will pray for your family.
