Dear Family: Please accept my belated condolence for the loss of your loved one. To live to be the age of 99 is truly a blessing from God. (Psalm 90:10) Imagine Leona living "forever". That is what the Bible promises at Revelation 21:4 because one of the things that will be gone is death and Isaiah 25:8 says that “He (God) will swallow up death forever.” For those who have died, God promises they will be resurrected back to earth under peaceful conditions. Leona is included in that promise. (Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11) We can trust God and put all of our faith in him because he does not lie.
