Celebrating the life of Virginia G. Neely
Thank you for signing Virginia G. Neely's Guestbook
I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which assures us that Jehovah God will bring death to an end by swallowing it up forever. I hoe these scriptures will be of some comfort.
With Deep Sympathy.

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of ur Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". James 5:11; God "is very tender in affection (very compassionate) and merciful". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
