    To the family, my deepest condolences in the loss of Mrs. Walker. In this time of grief I am reminded of John 14: 1 where it says "Do not let your hearts be troubled, exercise faith in God, exercise faith in me". That faith can be in the resurrection, Acts 24: 15 There is going to be a resurrection. Jesus says at John 5: 28, 29 Those in the memorial tomb will hear my voice and come out. Prayers for the family.

    We are saddened to know you are grieving the recent loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the words found in Psalms 34:18 which reads: “ Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15 Isaiah 55;11).
