    My condolences to the Holt family. I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine what your family is going through right now. Rest assured that there is hope for the future. John 5:28.29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs (God's loving memory) will hear his voice and come out." Your dear loved one is safe inside of God's memory, and you have the hope of seeing her resurrected right here on the earth just as you remember her. No doubt you have many fond memories of Donna, so be assured that Almighty God does too, and he yearns to bring her back to life. (Job 14:14,15) My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    My heartfelt prayers are with the family and friends. Know that GOD the comforter will give all the comfort that is needed during your time of loss>(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Acts 24:15 promises us a resurrection of our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. Psalms 37:9-11 gives us that all our suffering will end. Rev 21: tells us that he will wipe all tears from their eyes and there will be no more death. May you find comfort endurance and peace during this time of trial.
