Dear Family,
Im so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. I personally did not know Deborah but when I saw how young she was it brought back feelings of losing my Dad so young as well. These thoughts in the Bible brought me great comfort maybe it will for you too. At John 5:28,29 it says God is going to call those who have died out of their memorial tomb to a resurrection of life. Can you imagine seeing Deborah alive and healthy again hear on a paradice earth? This is promised in the Bible. If you would like some more scriptures to look up on this subject please email me at: kellz192@yahoo.com
Sincerely, Kelly Konyha
