My sincere condolences to the family Pope for the lost of your beloved Lanny, sharing this message from the Bible where our God promised a resurrection Acts 24:15 and give everlasting life here on the earth in a renewed paradise Psalms 37:11,29, while we wait for these blessings in a near future that the peace of God be with the family.
