My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Joyce. When Jesus Christ was here on Earth he promised that all those in the Memorial tombs in the grave will hear his voice and come out John 5:28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under Jesus Christ Kingdom rule that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord’s Prayer no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-4. Please read this wonderful promise in your Bible it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time
