    To: The Holloway Family.
    I am sorry for your lost. We are living in a time where we experience so much pain, suffering, and sorrow. We can look forward to a time when these things will not exist. Jesus’ Words At John 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day.
    May the hope in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.
