    I know your hearts are heavy currently but please accept my deepest sympathy. I wanted to share something with your family that was shared with me to help me copy with the loss of a loved one. This is it "Never forget your loved one is in the memory of our Heavenly Father, the one who promises to restore life to our loved ones in the resurrection (John 5:28 & 29). This hope was made possible by the God of love who sent his son to die for us (John 3:16). The resurrection of our loved ones tells us a lot about God's love and underserve kindness. What a joyous and delightful time it will be when the family and friends of Ms. McIlwain will welcome her back to life in the RESURRECTION. May the words of Hebrews 6:9-11 comfort all of Ms. McIlwain's family and friends.

    Our hearts aches in knowing you are mourning the recent loss of your dear loved one. We hope you can find comfort in the words found in Holy writing, in Psalms 9:9 which reads: “ 9 Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise. See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one?
