Beautiful Joanne and Beloved Sally,
Know the words of salvation to all as it is written in 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-14: (13) Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. (14)For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
Sally, May the peace of the Lord be with you and your family during this time. Amen.
