So sory for your loss. When we lose a love one in death, it brings us much sorrow and tears. Sometimes the grief we feel in connection with death is so overwelming we can not determine how we feel. Even Jesus gave way to tears after the death of his close friend Lazarus (John 11:35). Just as Jesus brought Lazarus back to life, so he will also for our love ones. God tells us that he will resurrect our loved ones to live on a beautiful peaceful paridise earth (Acts 24: 15, Isaiah 45,18, Isaiah 65;21-22).What a wonderful promise this is for humankind. I hope that theses words and scriptures bring you a little comfort at this most difficult time (Psalms 55:22)

Shirley / Kevin. Renee & I recently heard of your parents passing. I have such good memories of spending the summer at your home in Green Cove Springs years ago. You guys were such fun cousins. My father in law recently passed of cancer. Sad times. Much love, Curtis Freeman
