    To the family and friends,

    I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one.
    When Jesus was on earth he demonstrated what he will do when he fully takes over the affairs of the earth. He fed the hungry, healed the sick and brought the dead back to life. (John 9:11, Mark 8:1-9 and John 11:38-44) He is the rightful king of God’s kingdom.( Matthw 6:9,10) Jesus has power from God to bring our loved ones back to life. John 5:28, 29 says: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…….”

    My family and I want to offer our deepest sympathy on reading of the sad, unexpected death of Rodney. My the warmth of family and friends and your loving memories give you strength during the times ahead. It is truly comforting to know our Lord Jesus made a personal promise regarding our loved ones who have died. He promised a resurrection. A time when we will see them again. That guarantee is found at John 11:25. It is our hope these words will bring you comfort and hope.
    With heartfelt prayers
    The Dawes family
