1 thought on “Ilene Cooksey”

  1. Hello Cooksey Family, I would like to share a comforting scripture with you. The scripture is found at Acts 24:15. Here the Bible speaks of a “resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous.” Yes, one day in the near future, God will fulfill this promise and bring our loved ones back to life. I am deeply sorry for your loss, and hope this message brings you comfort during this difficult time.
