 Our Grand creator Jehovah is such a loving God and he provides such wonderful provisions for us during our time of bereavement.  The Bible tells us at Isaiah 25:8 "that he will wipe tears from our eyes."  He also gives us hope in the form of the resurrection.  John 5:28,29 says "all those in the memorial tombs  will hear his voice and come out."   The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.  So while we greive now for those lost to us in death, the best is yet to come!

I've just heard of my dad's passing today through the mail. Even though we only knew it other for 4 years he still was a good guy. Just wish he didn't make me an outcast in his life. Being a Christian you would think he wouldn't have done that. If you would like to contact me you can find me on Facebook. Also, how did he die?
