  1. To the Pagel family with my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from the promise by Christ Jesus that there is going to be a resurrection of those that have fallen asleep in death.(John 5:28,29) When Jesus was on earth he performed many miracles including the resurrection of his friend Lazarus.(John 11:11,43) Under God’s Kingdom, Christ Jesus will raise our loved ones on a global scale to live on a paradise earth. That was God’s original purpose for mankind in the first place.(Psalms 37:10,11,37). What a beautiful future, and to see Maurine again!
