  1. So sad to see a beauty go but we have the hope to see you again as in John 5:28 ,29 which states this …do not be amazed at this for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out those who did good things to a resurrection of life and those who practice vile things to a resurrection of judgement.
