  1. I would like to offer my sincerest condolences to the family of Lynn Wayne Butler. I would also like to share something very reassuring, in 1Corinthians 15:26 it mentions how God views death as an enemy he plans to get rid of forever and in John 5:28,29 it mentions how those in the memorial tombs will come out, so here we understand how we will have the wonderful chance to see our loved ones again.
