    To the McCurdy 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. Read Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29. The Bible helps us to see that has resurrected humans in the past and He is eager to do it again because He hates death and it is not God’s purpose originally for mankind. I would like to discuss more with you about God’s promises. If you like you can contact me at (614 870-2979. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson.

  5. Grandma I love you so much I’m lost I really thought you live forever I love you
