    Dear Sims family, my sincere condolences for your loss. Rest assured that Almighty God promises to redeem our dear loved ones from the power of the grave and from death, and to recover them. At Hosea 13:14, God says: “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them.” Imagine your dear loved one, Sylvia, being recovered, redeemed, brought back to life. This is what God has promised us, and we can look forward to seeing our dear loved ones again. May the hope of being reunited with Sylvia, bring you comfort and peace during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
