  1. Dear Wright Family, I would like to share an encouraging scripture with you. The scripture is found at Acts 24:15 where the Bible tells of a promise God, whose name is Jehovah, has made to mankind. He has promised that there will be a resurrection of the “righteous and the unrighteous.” Many people find comfort in knowing that they will be able to see their loved ones again. I hope you find comfort in this message during this difficult time.
