  1. I would like to send my condolences to the family of Simpson Perry Houck. It hurts losing someone you love to death and it can be difficult to cope with. I have lost some family members that were near and dear to me. The Bible can offer us some comfort when it comes to losing family and friends to death. The Bible states “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” – John 5:28,28. So God promises that we will see those whom we lost in death again which is what it states in the Bible as the “resurrection hope.” I hope that this brings some comfort to the family and that you all are able to take time to look that scripture up in the Bible.
