    My sincere condolences for the death of your dear Mrs. Abbott.  The God of heavens shares your loss.  He provides the wonderful hope of the resurrection (John 5:28-29; Hosea 13:14).  He also promises, at Psalm 37: 11, 29, 39, peaceful life forever on a perfect earth.  Jesus taught us to pray for that marvelous time at Matthew 6:9-10.  May the peace of God be with all of you.
