- Alex Miltiades, Kennesaw, GA

My dear friends in Greece and I look forward to seeing Anna in paradise. What a delightful person with extra strength and blessings to have lived such a beautiful life. Jesus will call and Anna will answer. Job 14:14 We are not designed to accept death. Jesus wept when Lazarus “rested” in the grave to be resurrected and reunited with his family 4 days later. What rejoicing occurred then and will in the future when Anna returns. Isaiah 26:19. Please be comforted, “Enjoy Life Forever” Love & Prayers, Sandy
