    Dear Chamlee Family, hello. I was reading online of Mr. Chamlee’s death. I would like to offer my condolences at this time. I hope that the thoughts I am sending along will be of some comfort to you. Please take care!

    The faithful man Job said If an able bodied man dies can he live again? You will call and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning. Job 14:14, 15 This denotes God’s earnest longing and desire. Genesis 31:30, Psalm 84:2
    Clearly God must keenly anticipate the resurrection.
    Can we really believe the resurrection promise? Yes there is no doubt that God and his Son are both willing and able to fulfill it. What does this mean for you? You have the prospect of being reunited with dead loved ones right here on earth but under very different conditions! John 5:28.
