My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to you and the family of your beloved Ruth. We wanted to share with you comfort from God's Word found in John 5:28,29. Here we are given the wonderful hope of the resurrection of our dear loved ones, here on earth just as Lazarus was in John 11. Have comfort in knowing our Heavenly Father shares our pain and sorrow when someone we love dies. ( Psalm 34:18) Remember, shared memories are cherished memories, so share them with each other during this very difficult time, and may they bring warmth to your hearts as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other.
