To the Markham Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I send my condolences to you and yours.
May the God of all comfort be with you and your Family in this time of need.
Jesus Christ himself said: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."
Acts 24:15 says: "There's going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."
May Jehovah God and Jesus Christ be with you all and may you have peace.
