Dear Mildred Ulm Dean family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Mildred. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also
