  10. John, Lauren, Bethany, and family… I am so very sorry to learn of your loss of Elizabeth.

    Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).

    Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences’?. John

    So sorry for the loss to all family and friends. The Lord knows our days and he wanted her back sooner. She was loved very much and will be missed the same.
