    To the Wright 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 Revelation 21:4. God has resurrected humans in the past and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. 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
