Thinking of you in the time of your loss.
Hey Sue sorry to hear about your dad but we all know he is in a much better place.All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Chambers Family, I would like to extend my sincere condolences to each of you. Although we are not acquainted personally, however, we universally share the pain of losing a loved one in death. And when it happens, the thought of never again being able to talk to, laugh with, or hold our loved ones can be most difficult to bear. A key to enduring this suffering is knowing that the Bible teaches that ‘there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous’ (Acts 24;15), our loved ones sleeping in the graves will soon come forth and have the opportunity to live forever under peaceful conditions right here on earth. (John 5;28,29; Rev. 21;3,4; Psalm 83;18) While grief at the loss of George is great, joy at receiving George in the resurrection will be greater. (Mark 5;42) Please read and find comfort in God’s loving promises during this difficult time and the days to come. Take care,
