    To the Howard family,
    I am sorry for the death of your loved one. Death isn’t normal and very hard to deal with. Jehovah gives us hope though. John 5:28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.
