My family is praying that Mildred's family places complete faith in the hope God offers to our loved ones who are sleeping in death. The Bible assures us that many millions of people who are dead in the grave will return to life on earth. (Acts 24:15; Luke 23:43) It assures us that resurrected ones will be able to learn the truth about God and to exercise faith in Jesus by obeying him. (Revelation 20:11-13) These ones who have been brought back to life and who cherish their relationship with God as Mildred did, ones who choose to do good things they are taught will be able to enjoy life forever in Paradise. (John 5:28-29) I pray that we all choose to obey Jesus and live forever. My condolences for your loss!

My deepest sympathy to the Clowers family! Comforting news is that the Creator of life has promised to restore the life of those in his memory and sustain it so they will never die again. Revelation 22:1-2 gives us a glimpse of the provision God has set in place for those alive when His will is done on earth. It speaks of the "trees of life" yielding their fruit each month and the "leaves of the trees" for healing the nations. This is the future prospect for our human family; this is the future prospect for Mildred!
