    To the Hargreaves Family
    My wife and I were very saddened to hear of the loss of Patricia. May you draw comfort from Jehovah’s word the Bible.

    Job. 14:14 ask the question…“If a man die, shall he live again?”

    The Bible makes it clear that God did not originally intend for humans to die.
    In God due time he will bring back many from the dead by means of the resurrection,

    I encourage you to have confidence in the resurrection..

    Once again my wife and I are saddened by your loss.
