    Doris had a life full of love and family. I offer my condolences to all. I wanted to share with you Doris ‘ bright and happy future. It is from God himself. In his word, his son states that all those in memorial tombs and graves will come to life again here with us. So Doris is not lost to us forever. No according to God’s word she is in a sleep from which, like Lazarus, will awaken. The resurrection is a key feature of Jesus ‘ rule and it will be wonderful to see Doris again.

    What a marvelous event the earthly resurrection will be! It will be a time of irrepressible joy when families broken apart by death will be reunited! Jesus promises that those in the memorial tombs will come out (John 5:28,29). In harmony with God’s original purpose, those resurrected will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth (Luke 23:43). This promised future includes perfect health and everlasting life. The Bible says: “The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it.” Psalm 37:29

    Two years soon, it was only yesterday we heard Doris laughter. Time has slipped away. It is never time to forgo comfort. What great joy it will be to welcome Doris back to life here with us. Doris has a resurrection guarantee from God himself. Like Lazarus, in the book of John, she will return to life. Not some far off place but to loved ones here on the earth. If that’s not good enough, our Father has also promised to wipe out every tear, pain and death itself. We will enjoy Doris and the rest of our loved ones forever. What a wonderful day that will be.
