    To the Tang 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 (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) 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.

  16. jeanette n Williams

    So sorry to hear of your lost. I too have lost love ones in death. And I found comfort and hope in Jehovah God’s word the Bible at Revelation 21:3-4 where it tells us that our father will do away with death forever. Jehovah God loves you and he gave his son Christ Jesus to die for all of us. at John 3:16. Let his word the Bible comfort you . Go to and it will answer any questions you may have. Or contact me at my e-mail
    Sincerely , Jeanette Williams
