I'm very sorry to hear the loss of Mrs.Sonja Fournier. May the words found at Acts 24:15(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") give you some comfort and peace.
This is a promise from Our God that (" In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began"-Titus 1:2)who cannot lie
