    God’s Word offers the hope of eternal life through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “So you also are now in anguish. But I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.” (John 16:22)

    “For just as in Adam all die, so too in Christ shall all be brought to life,…” (1 Corinthians 15:22).

    “Peace I leave with you my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid” John 14:27

    O Loving Father and Savior, send your angels to carry the soul of your servant, Leona Weinmann, from this earth to the heavenly place of eternal and everlasting life.
