I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Julie. While grief at the loss of a loved one is great, our heavenly Father promises that those who have fallen asleep in death will be raised to life. (Acts 24:15) Imagine the joy at receiving back a loved one in the resurrection. Until that time, may the cherished memories of your dear loved one help bring you inner peace and live forever in your heart.
