    Please accept my heartfelt sympathies in the loss of your dear father, brother, grandfather, and friend. I am sure Phillip was well loved by all of you! How comforting in knowing Almighty God not only have the power, but also the desire to resurrect our loved ones. Jesus Christ himself said at (John 5:28,29) Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs (God's memory) will hear his voice and come out,those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgement
