    Jesus promised there will be a resurrection at John 5:28, 29 and we look foward to being together with Aunt Rose and Uncle Armond and the whole family in paradise. Imagine the good times we’ll have in perfect health, happiness and peace! Revelation 21:4 “And He (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
