    My deepest condolences over the loss of Marilyn. May God’s tender mercies be with the family during this grievous time. May your cherished memories be a source of true comfort. Life is so precious, but so fleeting. Draw close to your Heavenly Father and He will sustain you. He has given us his son that we might have hope. Jesus relayed a promise from his heavenly Father-Jehovah-(Ps.83:18) that the hour is coming in which there would be a bringing back to life (or resurrection) of all those in the memorial tombs. (John 5:28)(Psalms 37:29) This will be a time of great rejoicing; when Almighty God makes all things new. I look forward to seeing my deceased loved ones again when the earth becomes a paradise. Matthew 5:5. I pray that you can draw comfort from the hope of seeing Marilyn again also. Loving thoughts and prayers of peace are with you.
