 Susie and family, We are SO SAD to hear of Jr.'s passing. Love him and enjoyed many nights at the bowling center with that nut! He was always a good friend. We never did get by - he was going to make some minestrone soup for us -- sorry we missed out on that. Love and prayers to you all, and the eternal hope that you will all be together again in God's perfect heaven!

 Sorry to hear about you loss. While on earth, Jesus identified features of his rule that can undo any present suffering resulting from random, unforeseen events. "I am the resurrection and the life," he said. (John 11:25) Yes, Jesus has the power and the desire to bring back to life millions who died tragically as a result of natural disasters, old age or any kind. An empty promise? Jesus bolstered our basis for confidence in him by performing resurrections while he lived on earth. Three of these are recorded in the Bible.-Mark 5:38-43; Luke 7:11-15; John 11:38-44. Where will the resurrections take place? Here on earth. -Ps 37:11,29. For more comfort here's my text 919-561- 8472 and my email wanttohelponesthataresad@gmail.com
