Dear Zeigler family, I realize this is a time of grief and pain because this enemy death brings nothing but and it's at this time I would hope you'll accept my deep regrets and sorrow for your loss and let me share the comfort and hope I received when this enemy took my entire family. I found this in what Jehovah Gods word the Bible says at John5:28,29 where Jesus says we'll see our love ones again when he brings them back in the resurrection. We're also told at Isaiah25:8 this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. And at gives me more hope and comfort and this helps me get through each day and I'm hoping this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you. Please know I do share your grief. Please feel free to let me know if this helped at Hoping to hear from you. Sincerely, GMosley
