    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?
