Condolences for the family of “Josephine D. Linkus, nee Zikas”

I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I personally know the loss of both a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However I found comfort in the Bible’s promise for the future. Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection, a time when God will reunite us with our loved ones again! I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.
