  1. So very sorry for the loss of your loved one Jack Lindbergh Land. In your time of anguish, know that there is a resurrection, (a better place) I sincerely hope your sorrow will not be unrelenting. Rather, you can draw close to God in prayer, and the Bible promises that ‘he himself will sustain you.’?’?Psalm 55:22.

  2. I wanted to send my love and sympathies to th Land family. I am so sorry for hear of your recent loss. Losing a loved one in death can leave us with feelings of sadness and grief. However, the Bible provides a hope that will help to comfort us and to replace those negative feelings with those of happiness for the future. John 5:28,29 says, ‘Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.’ These verses speak of the opportunity to be reunited with our loved ones who have died, to experience a time when ‘death will be no more.’ (Revelation 21:4)
