She is not lost to you. She will be there at the dawn of a better brighter day, for God has promised a paradise this earth will be and those in death will awaken as if they just went to sleep Isaiah 26:19 and Isaiah 33:25 says "no resident will say I am sick."- BR

• Please accept my sincere condolences during this time of grief. My hope is that the words of Christ Jesus be of comfort, when he stated that "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5: 28, 29). We can also take comfort in God's personal promise to "wipe out every tear" and that soon, even "death will be no more" (Revelation 21: 4).

Hello Duncan Family, Im a neighbor living in the area.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post.I too, well know the grief of losing love ones,and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5:28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.

No matter how long one lives their death still bring much pain and sorrow. The tears of pain and grief that are shed at this time can become tears of joy. This will become a reality for many as John 5:28 is fulfilled. There you will read Jesus promise to cry out with a loud voice to those asleep in the grave and they will respond by coming forth. What a joyous time that will be as the dead are reunited with their loved ones. At that time many will reflect on the Biblical account of the resurrection of Lazarus by Jesus. By reading and meditating on this account now your family can be comforted with the hope of seeing your dead lioved one again. Thus comfort comes from the "God of all comfort."
