May your family take comfort in this verse; John 5:28, 29: Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment. May Jesus words of the resurrection hope bring you comfort in your time of grief.
