    Dear family of Julia,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your precious daughter.
    So young, with her whole life ahead.
    We can ask why? We may wonder if their is anything to look forward to.
    The Bible gives us reason for hope.
    Under the govenment of Gods son, Jesus, the Bible at Revelation 21:3,4 shows that in the near future, sickness and death will be no more. We can look forward to the fullfillment of John 5:28,29 ,the resurrection hope and the joy of seeing our loved ones again. Please read these texts in your copy of the Bible.
    May Jehovah God be with you.
