    My condolence to the Manning family. May the words that Jesus spoke to Martha [ JOHN 11:23-25] about the resurrection comfort you at this time. By meditating on these words and the prayer at Matthew 6:9 of conditions on the earth being as they are in heaven comfort you. [ ISAIAH 25:8] We know that there is no death in heaven, so may these words be of comfort to you at this time. My prayers are with the family.
