I am sorry to hear of the passing of Miss Alice, please accept my sincere condolences. When death strikes, the pain can be devastating, but know that God cares and He will sustain you, during this time of grief.-Psalms 55:22; I Peter 5:7. I hope also, that knowing what Jesus says about the earthly resurrection will bring you some comfort. He tells us that there will be a resurrection when he restores those who have fallen asleep in death, back to eternal life on the future paradise earth.-John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. Just imagine being reunited with your love one again.-Acts 24:15; John 11:38-44. May God continue to comfort and bless the Campion's Family.-I John 4:8
