    My heart goes out to the family and friends during this difficult time. One of the most difficult ordeals we face is losing a loved one in death, especially someone as young as Cecilia. May you find a measure of comfort from the promise found in God’s word at John 5:28,29, when Jesus said, “Do not marvel at this,because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” Again you have my deepest sympathy.
