Dear Eileen, I want you to know how sorry I am at the loss of your father, but I would like to impart a few scriptures from the Bible that give us hope for all who have passed away. Although there a millions who have passed away we hold the hope of them being resurrected to a much better life one free of pain, illness and death, Luke 23:43 and Acts 24:15. Then they will learn about God and Jesus and live on earth forever serving God in unity and great harmony, John 5:28&29. So let the peace of our God, Jehovah be upon you and your family. With much love Diane Campbell
