    Ms Allison says:
    Sorry for your loss, the Bible shows a real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones. John 5 : 28, 29 states the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus voice and come out to a resurrection. This is comforting to know that Jesus is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. Hope this brings comfort to the family.
