  6. May the God of peace bring you comfort 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 . Losing one spouse has been described as one of the hardest losses to content with. The friendship that has been built has no comparison. Therefore the hope the Bible gives of a future resurrection given by our Lord and Savior at John 5:28,29 " Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29�½�½and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment." These words bought us comfort too. Your neighbor and friend Maddy Hernandez
