Celebrating the life of Annette Sweeney
Thank you for signing Annette Sweeney's Guestbook
My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Be assured that the almighty God truly cares for the family!
May you find comfort in the promise that "... there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous" (Acts 24:15), and very soon "... no resident will say, 'I am sick'" (Isa. 33:24) because "... death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:4)

I am a Christian worker and just wanted to express my sincere condolences to the family for losing such a dear beloved one. The Bible assures us that we can see our loved ones again. Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will…. come out.” (John 5:28, 29) This is in harmony with God’s original purpose that those who have been resurrected will have the opportunity to live forever on an earthly paradise. (Luke 22:43) This future will be free of pain and suffering and includes perfect health and everlasting life.
I truly hope this information brings comfort to the family. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the address below.
