  2. Janice Lee Graham

    My deepest condolences goes out to the Parker family and friends. I am truly sorry for your loss. And I also want to share a wonderful hope found at John 5: 28,29 where it tells us that one day non other than Jesus Christ will resurrect our dead loved ones. This blessing is a promise from our heavenly father stated at Acts 24:15. I hope these scriptures were of comfort to you and yours.
