I wish you peace and comfort during this time of sorrow. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4) The
Bible gives real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises that
your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a beautiful peaceful
paradise on the earth. (John 5:28, 29)

Sincerely,

S. Ellis
