I am truly sorry to hear of Mae Will's death. My daughter and I spent many day's visiting her and discussing God's wonderful promises found in the Bible. She appreciated what she was learning from the Bible. I hope the family finds comfort in what is stated at John 5:28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life....
“While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you.”
