    When a loved one dies, family and friends feel a great loss. It is my hope to share a comforting thought. In the Bible book of John 11:11,14 Jesus likens death to sleep. Thinking of our loved ones as in a deep sleep brings peace of mind. Further words of Jesus at John 5:28,29 open a great hope. He says, “Do not marvel at this, because all those in the memorial tombs will hear his(Jesus) voice and come out to a resurrection…” What a wonderful promise and sure future for those asleep in death. May you find comfort and peace at this time of loss. We express our deepest sympathy.
