  1. I am deeply sorry for your loss. May Jehovah the God of comfort be with you all during this difficult time. John 5:28,29 says “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” The bible promises that one day you will be able to see Ms. Warner again in a beautiful paradise on earth. Ecc. 9:5,10 says “The living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all . . . Whatever your hand finds to do, do with all your might, for there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave, where you are going.” No need to worry, Ms. Warner is simply sleeping awaiting to be resurrected.
