    I am very sorry for your loss. May you take comfort in knowing that Johnnie is only asleep in death and that soon Jesus will awaken him. (John 11:11-14) In God’s new Kingdom for which we pray, we will never have to mourn the loss of our loved ones again. (Matt. 6:10; Psalm 37:11, 29; Rev. 21:4) I hope this brings you peace.

    My condolences to the Woodson family and friends. The Bible says there is going to be a resurrection of the dead. Acts 24 : 15. What that can mean is that there is a real hope of being reunited with your loved one. John 15 : 28,29. I hope you find comfort from the scriptures.
