Dear Fudge Family, I wanted very much to send my sincere condolences to the friends and family. The loss of a family member can be very painful but we can draw comfort from the Bible because it provides a guarantee from our Creator that our deceased loved ones have a hope of a resurrection. This promise is found at John 5:28-29, nine resurrections are recorded in the Bible and they build faith in a hope only Almighty God can provide. Please find comfort and strength in these verses, again my sincere condolences.
