We are very sorry to hear the loss of Ms.Nancy.It s very difficult to loss someone in death we dearly love. But there is a beautiful hope that God has given in his word the bible.he is eager to raise the dead. The faithful man Job asked: “If a man dies, can he live again?” Job was speaking about waiting in the grave until the time came for God to remember him. He said to God “You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.”​—Job 14:13-15. God longs for the time when he will bring the dead back to life. Is it not heartwarming to learn that God feels that way? God can remember our dead loved ones in every detail, and he is ready to restore them to life. They will be brought back to life. That is the hope of the resurrection.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Sherry’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can’t change anything and can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort calm your hearts and help you heal. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17) Lean on Him in the days to follow. One way that God comforts us today is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. For the Bible’s answers to questions about grief and death please visit

Sherry was the sweetest friend. We made res feather wreaths just before Christmas with a group of our friends. She gave hers away as soon as she returned to her apt. Complex gave the wreath to an older woman with no family. She always put others first.spoke highly of her children. She loved you both so very much.... she will be missed...... so sorry for the loss of your mom...
