Dear Short Family; While reading the online obituary, I observed the death of your love one. Death is an enemy to mankind and who can understand it? IT can and dose have a devastating effect on you and your family as well. Can you imagine reading a newspaper with the headline: "When Death is Swallowed Up Forever....." What a wonderful time that will be. Revelation 21:4 offers this hope, it states: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." What a comforting hope. If you would be interested in learning even more, I can send you a little tract free of charge that is entitle "What Hope For Dead Loved Ones?" I am not asking anything from you and never will, I am not selling or conducting any business at any sort. I am just showing neighborly love just like (Luke 10:27) tells us to do. If you have any Questions please feel free to contact me at this e-mail address here ( I offer my sincere condolences, may the God of peace be with you and your family. Sincerely Yours, Brandy Molina
