To the Matthews Family, I'm so sorry that you lost your one in death. Jesus talked about death in John 11:11-14. Jesus also talked about a Resurrection of those who die. John 5:28,29. How comforting to know you have the hope of seeing your dear loved one again. I know you will miss him terribly . Please go to Jehovah in prayer . He is ready and willing to help you through this very difficult time, because he cares for you 1peter 5:7. ...My deepest sympathy for your family. With warm Christian Regards,
