  1. Dear Johnson family, you have my deepest sympathy in this time of bereavement. The loss of a loved one can bring deep sorrow and pain. In Gods word the Bible you can gain comfort. Acts 24:15 says “There will be a resurrection”. So you will see your dead loved one again. What a wonderful time that will be.
