Celebrating the life of Ella L. (Lou) Johnson
Thank you for signing Ella L. (Lou) Johnson 's Guestbook
To the Family. I am sorry to hear of your loss and know the pain of the death of a loved one. It can be a difficult time. God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope. Isaiah 25:8 says that 'death will be swallowed up forever .' What a relief. The time will come when humans will no longer look forward to it. Even better is when the time comes when we will see our loved ones again, as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection." The God of the Bible is truly 'the God of all comfort.' ~2Corinthians 1:3

Sorry for your loss. May you find hope in the promise at Isaiah 26:19, Acts 24:15 and Revelation 24:14. May these Bible based promises bring you hope and comfort. May you also find comfort in your many fond memories.
