  1. Dear Reeves Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Loss of a loved one can be very difficult, so I would like to share a comforting scripture with you. The scripture is found at Acts 24:15, which speaks of a resurrection. Yes, God has made a promise to bring our loved ones back to life. This is a promise many people look forward to being fulfilled. I hope this message finds you well, and I hope it gives you comfort during this troubling time.
