Hello I just happened to read Jade's obituary and felt compelled to write. It is my hope that some thoughts from the Bible will bring you some. Hope, comfort and peace. It was never God's intention that we should die. When He put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, he also put before them the prospect of living forever happy and in good health. (Genesis 1:28) Our creator has not given up on that original plan..perfect live on paradise earth...even though Satan, Adam and Eve messed up (Isaiah 55:10-11) The Bible tells us that it is Satan who is responsible for death, and not God as some would tell us. (Hebrews 2:14) Our creator Jehovah God sent his Son Jesus Christ to ransom us from death and to destroy the works of the Devil (1 John 3:8) Jesus said: "I am the resurrection and the life. He that excercises faith in me will live thought he dies." (John 11:25) With Jesus Christ enthroned as King of God's Kingdom, resurrection of the dead - including Jade - and a restoration of paradise on earth is assured. It is My hope that until that time comes, you will find hope, comfort and peace in these promises from God. R/ Martin SkipperGrumby@aol.com
