I want to offer my condolences for the loss of your loved one.. The Bible offers this hope at Acts 24;15 which says there is going to be a resurrection. This has given hope to many. May it do the same for your family.

Hello Westmoreland Family, I'm a neighbor living in the area. Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too, well know the grief of losing love ones, and that at times like these it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5 :28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.W.
