    My husband and I just wanted to convey our deepest sympathy to the family and friends who have lost their beloved Billy. We have lost ones very dear to us and understand the pain felt at such times. How grateful we can be that our Heavenly Father has given us much in the way of comfort through the hopes and promises held out to all in his word. One promises was brought out by Christ Jesus at John 5:28,29 where he said “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. He demonstrated his ability to do this on three seperate occasions when he was here on earth. (Luke 7:11-17; Luke 8:40-56; John 11:11-44) We also have the hope mentioned in Revelation 21:3,4 and Isaiah 25:8 where it says that soon “death will be no more” that God will “swallow up death forever”. We sincerely hope that a review of these faith strengthening accounts will give you the comfort and encouragement you need now and in the days to come. Please continue to look to the love and support of those around you and to our Heavenly Father who promises in Psalms 55:22 “that he himself will sustain you”. Again we are so sorry for your loss. With Sincere Sympathy, Mike and Becky
