What a beautiful family, to greet Ed back in paradise. When he “awakens” from the grave, as Lazarus did; Ed will be thrilled to know that instead of war, people will be getting resurrected. We will enjoy life in perfection as was intended in Eden. There will be no more pain, sickness, or death. Rev 21:3,4 We grieve for a short time; knowing our loved ones will come back ,young and healthy, to live forever. Please enjoy:, “Enjoy Life Forever”. Christian Love, Sandy Wirfs
