We will miss you dearly uncle Joe

M. Rose April 06, 2018

To the family. I’m so sorry to learn of the passing of your beloved Joe. May the scriptural promise of our Lord Jesus about the resurrection comfort you during this time of great sorrow. When Jesus was on the earth he demonstrated his ability to resurrect those that had fallen asleep in death. He will do so again for he said that “they will hear his voice and come out...” - John 5:28,29. Do not despair, because we could look forward to seeing our loved ones again, “for it is impossible for God to lie” - Hebrews 6:18; Revelation 21:4
