    I am deeply sorry for the loss of your family member dear to you, Shirley E. Hobson. My heartfelt sympathy goes to your entire family during this difficult time. But it is heartwarming to learn that God feels for you and he longs for the time when he will bring back to life your loved ones sleeping in death according to John 5:28,29. Meanwhile, may the God of all comfort be able to comfort your entire family.
