  10. Flowers family,
    Death is truly a enemy of life and it’s sting can be very painful.
    None of us can stop or outrun death. Jesus liken death to a deep
    sleep or rest. We can appreciate God’s love to know that our be-
    loved ones are not suffering any pain or heartache. (John 11:11-14)
    Sherrie has the wonderful hope of a resurrection to a righteous new
    world where sickness and death will be no more. ( John 5:28, 29,
    Isaiah 25:8; 33:24)

  11. Dear family we are sorry to hear about your loss death is difficult for family and friends; however, the Bible holds out hope for our deceased love ones found in the Bible book of John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29. Why not read these scriptures in your personal copy of the Bible.

    Peacefully Yours
