Richard “rests “ while we miss him and wait for the resurrection. John 5:28,29 We have a sure hope of seeing Richard when Christs’ heavenly Kingdom government brings our loved ones back to a paradise that was originally intended. Isaiah 9:6,7 Jesus will call and Richard will answer. Job 14:14 Jesus said that “Lazarus was “asleep”, and after 4 days in the grave he was brought back to life.. Nothing can keep Richard from Jehovah’s love ; not even death. Romans 8:38,39 Please continue to be comforted. JW.org “Enjoy Life Forever” Love & Prayers, Sandy
