    Dear Sr. Nancy & Family,
    My prayers have been said for you and your family. I am sure your constant faith, Nancy, is a real comfort but I am very sorry and I am sure that you miss your father dearly.

    “Listen for I will tell you a mystery! We will not all die, but we will all be changed, in a

    moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound and the

    dead will be raised imperishable, and will be changed. For this perishable body must put on

    imperishability, and this mortal body must on immortality. . When this perishable body puts

    on imperishability, and this mortal body puts on immortality, then the saying that is written

    will be fulfilled:

    “Death has been swallowed up in victory.

    “Where, O death is your victory?

    Where, O death is your sting?”

    The sting of death is sin and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives

    us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15: 51-57)

    God’s love and peace, Bill Wolfe
