    My condolences to Ms.Shepard’s family and friends. “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) May God’s promises comfort you during this time. May wonderful memories also help ease your sorrow.
