So many wonderful memories of Diane, growing up in church together. My thoughts and prayers for you, brothers and sister and mom. Whenever I think of her I see her sweet smile, always smiling or laughing. What a reunion it will be one day in heaven!

My condolences to the Smith families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Diane. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
