  1. Welch Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss, and I would like to share a scripture with you. The scripture is found at Acts 24:15 which speaks of a resurrection. Yes, God, whose name is Jehovah, has promised to bring our loved ones back to life. We have the opportunity to see our loved ones, who have passed, again. Many people find it comforting knowing that they can see their loved ones again. I hope you find comfort in this message as well.
