To the family of Mrs.Ryan with my sincere condolences. May you draw comfort from the promise of the resurrection by Christ. At John 5:28,29 Christ Jesus said “Do not be amazed at this, for all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out.” When Christ was on earth he demonstrated his ability to resurrect those that fell asleep in death. He will do so again on a global scale during his reign of God’s Kingdom that we pray for. John 11:11,43; Matthew 6:9,10.
