    My condolences to the Thomas family. My Almighty God comfort you, and give you the strength you need to endure your lost. John 11:25-26 Jesus said: ‘ I am the resurrection and the life. The one ho exercises faith in me even though he dies, will come to life; and everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. D you believe this?’” Almighty God Jehovah has promised that there will be a resurrection by means of His Son Jesus. It will come tue for God cannot lie. My these words comfort your family.
