    first Thessalonians 4: 13-18 Says ,(I do not want you to be ignorant brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep ,lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,with the voice of an archangel,and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.And thus we shall always be with the Lord.. To family of Beverly,she was. My sister from another Mother . And I share these words from the Bible to comfort you as they have comforted me!
