May the Family know that she is safe in Gods memory awaiting for Him to instruct His dear Son, Jesus Christ to fulfill the words of John 5:28,29 where we find him here saying: Do not be amazed at this fir the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs " Or in Gods memory" will hear his "Jesus Christ" voice and come out, to a resurrection to life. So may these words bring some comfort in the way God can hold your right hand and as each of you throw your anxieties on Him because He cares for you, as He says in 1 Peter 5:7 AMD also go to to find many other promises of Jehovah God thru His Son, Jesus Christ and when Jehovah Eliminates Death, as He says in 1 Cor. 15:26 it will be the kind of freedom we have never had.

My sincere condolences to the friends and family. May you find comfort in the loving words at Psalms 34:18.
