    My sincere condolences to friends and family for your loss. This hope really comforts me and I pray it can help you too: Jesus said, ?the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs (those in God?s memory) will hear his voice and come out.? (John 5:28, 29) The thought of holding those we love in our arms again can help us cope during this very difficult time. We are so sorry again, Barbara will be missed greatly.
