Words seem inadequate to express the sorrow felt by the loss of Bertha. My heart is with you. As well as this beautiful encouraging promise, John 5:28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Imagine that day when all our dear loved ones are brought back to life through a resurrection and reunited with us again. What a truly beautiful promise of comfort and hope and how we long for that special day so close at hand.
