    Very sorry to read of the passing of your dear loved one Mike. Life is such a precious gift and yet so short-lived for the time we exist. We are comforted by the hope of the resurrection. God hold out this wonderful hope for all those in the grave. At John 11:25 Jesus said " I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE. HE THAT EXERCISES FAITH IN ME, EVEN THOUGH HE DIES, WILL COME TO LIFE." Mark 5:38-43 is one of the nine accounts of ones who were resurrected. How comforting to know these things from the Holy Scriptures. The gift of your memories of Mike will bring you great joy and turn into a treasure. You and yours will receive strength through prayer to God, you will feel comfort by the loving concern of your God-fearing friends, and you will be studying God's Word. Trust in " the God of All Comfort" Psalms 83-18 Agape M.L. HURT
