1 thought on “Janie Louise Whitley”

  1. Hello, 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 promise has made to bring loved ones, who have passed, back to life on the earth. Yes, we will be able to see our lived ones again on the earth. Many look forward to the fulfillment of this promise, and find it comforting to know they will be able to see their loved ones again. I hope this message brings the family comfort during this difficult time.
