  1. Dear Martin Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death can be very difficult, so I would like to share a 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, God has promised to bring our loved ones, who have passed, back to life on earth. This is a promise many look forward to being fulfilled, and they also find it comforting to know that they will be able to see their loved ones again. I hope this message finds you well, and brings the family comfort during this difficult time.
