Jennifer Ugarte

To Theresa Ruth’s loved ones, I’m so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you must feel. I have found comfort in scriptures like Job 14:14,15 which remind me that God cares so deeply for us that he yearns for the day when he will bring us back to life on earth (John 5:28, 29). These words fill me with the hope of seeing again the ones that I have lost. I hope that these words bring you comfort as well.
