  1. Dear Stafford Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss, and I know that losing a loved one in death can be difficult; so 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.” This is a promise God has made to bring our loved ones back to life, and many find it comforting knowing they will be able to see their loved ones again. I hope this message brings the family comfort as well.
