    To the Cates family: I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Cates. Please remember that he is not suffering but is asleep in death, waiting to hear Jesus voice; John 5:28 & 29. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Love,

    My sincere condolences to the family I am sorry for your loss of your dear love one. However, the Bible offers us a real hope for the future in Revelation 21:4 which states "He will wipe out every tear from there eyes and death will be know more". How wonderful that will be, not seeing our love ones passing away in death. Also Acts 24:15 which says" there is going to be a resurrections of the righteous and unrighteous. This is truly a wonderful blessing to look forward too. I hope that in reading this scripture you and your family find comfort
