I was saddened to hear that Zelma had passed away, but what helped bring comfort was to find that the Bible speaks of a time when death will be done away with:

Isa. 25:8, 9: “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. . . . And in that day one will certainly say: ‘Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.’”

Also at 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.”

I know you will still experience pain, grief, and sorrow but I hope that these scriptures will bring some measure of comfort to you.

I hope your family will find comfort in Jesus' words:"Do not marvel at this, the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."(John 5:28,29) So for a little while, your love one will have to sleep in death, before she is awaken from the pangs of death.-John 11:11-44. May Jehovah God continue to comfort and bless your family.-Isaiah 66:13.

"I can't imagine what you must be feeling right now," because most grieving people feel like no one else could know what they're experiencing. Please know that everyone in Harrodsburg Kentucky that knows the Duncan Family share in your loss. It is an honor and pleasure to know most all of your family, especially Pat who is a special neighborhood friend. And I just loved Mrs. Zelmas fried potatoes. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
