Dear Rose, Kermit (Kermy) and Lisa,
We are so sorry for all of you. Kermit knew the wonderful hope for the dead as taught in the Bible.

Kermit knew what Isaiah 26:10-21 says: Your dead ones will live. A corpse of minethey will rise up. Awake and cry out joyfully, YOU residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of mallows, and the earth itself will let even those impotent in death drop [in birth]. 20 Go, my people, enter into your interior rooms, and shut your doors behind you. Hide yourself for but a moment until the denunciation passes over. 21 For, look! Jehovah is coming forth from his place to call to account the error of the inhabitant of the land against him, and the land will certainly expose her bloodshed and will no longer cover over her killed ones.

We look forward to seeing him in the New World.

We know that you, Rose, share that hope. Never let it get out of your mind and heart.

Lyle and Wanda Wilkins

Take heart in the promises of God, and know that you will meet your beloved again on that Heavenly Shore.
