“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4
My sincere condolences to the Harvey family and those who knew and loved Julie as you mourn her passing.
The Bible promises at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29 of a resurrection, which is a sure hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones.

Roy, Please know that I will be praying for God’s peace and comfort for all of you at this difficult time. Julie was such a dear lady. Loved by all. No more pain ... she was such a trooper. And you were such a great husband and caregiver. Your love for each other was evident.
