    To the Bowers 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!
