    It was sad to hear about the death of your loved one. I am a neighbor living in Overland Park. I found out about the death when going through obituaries .

    I wanted to share with you this comforting scripture taken from John chapter 5 verse 28.In part, it says that the dead will rise in the future (during the paradise).As you continue to read this scripture, it will provide you comfort beyond measure.

    You can also check on the website for more encouragement from the scriptures
