    I noticed that Mrs Odie's funeral was on the 21st. Funerals were not apart of God's purpose for mankind. Revelation 21:3-5 is a very comforting scripture. Soon God will make all things new. Sickness, pain and death will be no more. For additional information and comfort from the scriptures please visit Sincerely TL
