I am so sadden by the passing of Christa. Christa was my little girl when her sister, Maria and my daughter, Cyana were best friends in elementary school. She was the cutest, little girl and I can see her smile now everytime I reached out to kiss or hug her or bring her something. May she rest in Peace and may the family have Peace knowing she is now in the arms of our Almighty Father.

My deepest condolences to the Bennett family. Losing a loved one is always a heartbreaking experience, one that even our Lord Jesus experienced when his Lazarus died (John 11:33-35). But he also gave us a comforting hope for the future found in John 5:28, 29 -" 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, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." May the hope of once again seeing our loved ones once again teach others music, give you the strength that you need during these difficult times.

To The Family of Ms. Christa Michelle Bennett,

I am sadden to hear about your lost. I would like to share with you some scriptures that comforted me during my lost. My prayers are that you will be comforted as well. One of those scriptures is the promise found at Acts 24:15 " There is going to be a resurrection".

What a marvelous hope and comfort. A sure promise from God to see our loved ones again. Another bible scripture is at John 5:28,29 again the promise of a resurrection.

By now you might be wondering the following: Where will this resurrection take place? When is there going to be a resurrection?

God has resurrected humans in the past. The Bible reports eight instances of humans young, old, male, and female who were brought back to life on earth. Some had been dead for a short while, but one had been in a tomb for four days! John 11:39-44.

God is eager to resurrect humans that have died again. Jehovah (God's name) hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26). He has "a yearning" to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and see them live on earth again. Job 14:14,15.

There is a real hope for our dead loved ones.

Sorrowfully submitted, G. Stripling
