My sincere condolences for the loss of Stella. The Bible promises that our loved ones that have fallen asleep in death will be resurrected. John5:28, 29. We can look forward to the time when our Heavenly Father Jehovah God does away with death. Revelation 21: 3, 4. May you find comfort in these scriptures. May your memories of her help sustain and comfort you during this difficult time.
