  1. Dear Avant 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, here the Bible speaks of a time when God will bring loved ones back to life on the earth. This is a time many people look forward to, 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.
