    To the Smith family, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of a loved brings us feelings of anguish and grief, but you can find comfort and hope in God’s Word, the Bible. John 5:28, 29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones in a Paradise on earth where "death is no more." (Revelation 21:3, 4)
