  1. Thoughts and prayers going out to the whole family. May you rest in peace, Melba

  2. So sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one. I too have experienced that deep pain of loss. So, I look for ways to comfort others. I hope that you may find comfort in Job 14:14,15, which assures us that Almighty God has not only the power, but the desire to resurrect our dear loved ones.

    I am so sorry for your loss. All of us have lost someone in death and the pain can be overwhelming. But please take comfort in the Bible’s message at John 5:28, 29, which offers a hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones.
