    To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Cora has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the Rulership of Jesus Christ. READ John 5:28, 29, Job 14:14, 15,Psalms 37:29,Matthew 6:9,10 and Revelation 21:2-4

    I am so sorry for your families loss, the sting of death is never easy. I have however found comfort in a hope spoken of at Revelation 21:3&4. It tells us of a time soon when pain, mourning, and even death will be no more. The Bible even tells of a time when we will see our dead loves at Acts 24:15. I pray you receive peace and comfort soon.

    To the Lewis Family I am truly sorry to hear about the passing of Cora M Lewis. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. I would like to take this time to encourage all family members and friends to draw comfort from this loving promise from God. This promise provides benefits to ourselves, and to our departed love ones. Directing your attention to the scriptures, God tells us that soon He would call to those in the grave, and that our love ones would hear His voice and stand up in life again. (John 5:28-29) Yes we can find comfort in these words since they serve as a personal guarantee from God that Cora, and billions of others will live again. Yes she will be reunited back with her many family members and friends who sorely miss her. Can you envision what this time period will be like as the whole earth is filled with the sound of joy and laughter due to the resurrection of life taking place. On this day all can continue to build their trust in this arrangement by reading all nine accounts that speaks about the restoring of us extended to us. Here is just one such example recorded at Acts 9:36-42. Again to the family and friends I say please keep this promise near your hearts at all times. Remember that when God makes a promise, it becomes a reality. For God does not lie. ( Titus 1:2)
