    ¬I want to express my sincere s¬¬¬ympathy for the loss of your loved one and share the hope promised in the Bible.
    Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will…come out.” (John 5:28, 29)
    In harmony with God’s original purpose, those resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth. (Luke 23:43)This promised future includes perfect health and everlasting life for obedient humans.
    The Bible says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” (Psalms 37:29)

    I am so sorry to hear of Edith’s passing. My sister was asking about her and Frankie. When I looked
    them up I was taken aback. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family.
