I'm so sorry to read about the lose of Mrs. Patricia Hollinger. May the fond of memories of her give you some comfort in this difficult time. The promise written in God's word to see our dead loved ones again give you some hope as well.("And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.'' ACTS 24:15)
