  • To The Family of Helen George,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Death is a real enemy. Even God hates death and he has promised through his word in Revelations chapter 21 verse 3 and 4 to eliminate death along with sickness and pain forever. Soon the words spoken by his son Jesus regarding the resurrection in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 which reads, “All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,” will take place and allow us to welcome back those that have fallen asleep in death to live forever on a paradise earth. Psalms 37 verse 29. What a happy time that will be. May these promises from the bible bring you a measure of comfort and a real hope of seeing your loved ones again in the near future.
    Sincerely,
    Sandy
