Cathy Jansen and Family

To the family of Kelli Jo Burbach, I'm very sorry about the loss of your loved one. I wanted to share the scriptural hope that has given me so much comfort. I hope it will help you also. The Bible shows that God did not intend for humans to suffer and die, at any age. (Romans 5:12). It also calls death an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26). God promises to remove death forever. (Isaiah 25:8). He also promises to soon restore the earth and humans to his original purpose for them. Then he will resurrect our loved ones onto a cleansed, paradise earth where we can welcome them back. (John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:10,11,29). Please visit to find satisfying answers from the Bible, free of charge. I truly am sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Susan Novak
