When someone we love dies, it leaves a hole in our hearts. This sorrow was felt by Jesus, Mary and Martha when Lazarus their brother died. Jesus said to Martha: “I am the resurrection and the life, the one who exercises faith in me even though he dies, will come to life. Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” Then he proceeded to resurrect Lazarus and he promises to resurrect all those in the memorial tombs. Please read John 5:28, 29 in your Bible and may this hope bring your family comfort.
May her memory be eternal…… We did not personally know Clarissa, but we heard many stories about her from her sister Becky. We know she was loved by her family and friends and spent many years battling and fighting against cancer. May she rest in peace in a place where there is no pain or suffering….
