  1. To the Taggart family, please except our condolences for the loss of your loved one. It is a sad time when we lose someone to death. We wonder, is that it? Will we see our loved ones again? The Bible gives us some comforting information! Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection.” Also, John 5:28,29 says ” Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will come out-those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be judged.” May God comfort you during this time of loss!
