Estimada familia Martinez,
Por favor acepten mi más sentido pésame. Hechos 24:15 dice- “y tengo esperanza en cuanto a Dios, esperanza que estos mismos también abrigan, de que va a haber resurrección...” Jehova Dios promete que nuestros seres queridos volverán a vivir. Podemos confiar en su promesa.
