My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Marcia. 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. Be comforted knowing we are never alone when our enemy death occurs. Our Heavenly Father shares our pain and sorrow when someone we love dies (Psalm 34:18) May the loving memories bring you a smile and your heart start to heal. Share them with others and her memory will be cherished by all those who knew and loved her. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
