  3. Chris, Old Testament scripture says in Isaiah 26:19,
    “Our dead will live. Their corpses will rise.
    ‘You (Chris) who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, for your dew is the dew of the dawn, and the earth will give birth to the departed spirits.'”
    Also, the New Testament 1 Corinthians 15:52 says “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump…sound…the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
    Based on those Godly promises & love, you and your beloved family will reunite even though now separated.
    So dear Chris and beloved family, friends, work associates, we send you our healing hugs and entrust you all into Father God’s good care.
