I'm sending my deepest sympathy and a comforting thought to the family of Mrs. Else Neugebauer Richard. Remember the Father of tender mercies and the GOD of all comfort, comforts us in all our tribulation. GOD made hope for the dead possible by sending His only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for us. And Jesus promised that the dead will live again. Read John 5: 21, 28, 29 Mary Williams
