Hailey H says
I’m sorry to hear about Howard Zumwalt. I wanted to give my condolences to the family. I as well have lost many friends and family that were close to me and know it’s very hard. I find comfort in John 5:28,29, It says “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” This is very comforting for me, and gives us hope to see the ones we love again. I hope this gives you as much hope and comfort it has me. If you would like to contact me my e-mail is email@example.com
