    If we asked Don if he was done with living he would say no but. It is terrible to endure old age and then death. Where is there comfort in that? Mankind was never intended to grow old and die. Good news for Don and Hazel is they have guaranteed resurrection to life again with us here on the earth. Not my words but those of Jesus recorded at John 5:28&29; where he says this: all those in memorial tombs and graves will come out to life again. Like Lazarus, Donald will return to us. There is a wonderful future ahead, it will be so good to see them again.

    Donald has a secure future of life with us again! According to God’s word at John 5:28,29 Donald will be a part of all those in the memorial tombs and graves that will be resurrected. In the Lord’s Prayer we pray for God’s Kingdom to come and his will be done. What a wonderful part of that Kingdom rule to bring our loved ones back to us on a paradise earth. It’s God’s guarantee that Donald will be with us again!
