  7. Dear Starnes family,
    Please accept my condolence and deep regrets for your loss for I lost my entire family to this enemy death and I’d like to share where I found help at that time. I found comfort and hope in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there we’re told that we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and at Isaiah25:8 we’re told that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever,. These scriptures and others help me cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I’ll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you now when comfort and hope is needed hoping that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you’ll feel free to let me know if I accomplished my purpose. Hoping to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
