    Please except my condolence in the loss of your love one. Phil 4:6, 7 will help you receive the peace of God. John 5:28, 29 gives further assurance Jesus will restore life to those who has died. This is a wonderful blessing to look forward to knowing your loved one is in God's memory. Hope this thought brings comfort.
