    Written by: Stephanie S.

    Sending my condolences to the Littell family for the loss of your dear loved one. May you find comfort from the bible scriptures at Acts 24:15 that “there is going to be a resurrection” and John 5:28, 29 that holds out a hope of being reunited with your loved one. God hates death and views it as an enemy. Soon he will conquer that enemy that brings sorrow and mourning to families everywhere. (1 Corinthians 15:26)
