  1. Dear Dalton Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss, and would like to share a scripture with you. The scripture is found at Acts 24:15 which speaks of a resurrection. Yes, God had promised to bring loved ones who have passed back to life on the earth. Many people find if comforting knowing 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.
