    To the Lovely family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:4. In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. I would like to discuss more with you about God’s promises. Feel free to contact me at (614) 870-2979. Love Your Neighbor Irish J Richardson. Please call.
