I am so very sorry for your loss of Linda, even though I didn't get to know her personally. Losing a loved one isn't easy, but we do have a comforting hope of seeing our loved ones once again. It's found at John 5:28,29 which says,"All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out!" What a wonderful time that will be!
