I am so sorry to hear of Ms. Grace's death. Please treasure the cost Jesus paid so that Ms. Grace may live: "For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life."--John 3:16. May this hope prove to be comforting to the entire Earl family!

My sincere condolences to Grace's family. I just wanted to share with you the Bible's promise of the resurrection .

Jesus said at John 11:25, 'I am the resurrection and the life'. Jehovah has granted his son Jesus Christ the power not only to resurrect the dead but also to impart eternal life.

At Revalation 1:18, Jesus calls himself “the living one,” who has “the keys of death and of the Grave.” Jesus is our hope for the living and the dead. He promised to open up the tombs and give the dead life, either in the heavens as his 'Corulers' or 'Everlasting Life' on earth ruled by his heavenly government.—Joh 5:28, 29; 2Pe

So when Grace return to life, on this earth in perfect health wouldn't this be a grand reunion. This promise is a gift from Jehovah for all to read in their copy of the Bible at John 3:16, John 17:3, Romans 6:23 and Revelation 21:4.
