    To the Family of Mr. Christmas: When death strikes someone that we love, sometimes we cannot find the right words to say. I found that going to the Bible can help in this regard. When Jesus was on the earth, He healed the sick & raised the dead. He promised that he will do this again on a much larger scale in the near future. John 5 : 28 & 29 states, : " Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgement." We can see Mr. Christmas again, right here on this earth but under different conditions ( Psalms 37: 9, 10, 11 & 29). Please read these Scriptures in your Bible, they can bring you a measure of comfort until the fulfillment of them. I will keep your family in my thoughts & prayers. Love,
