I Thessalonians 4:13, 16, 18 (NKJ) But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Therefore comfort one another with these words. Our precious Mother and Grandmother, Carrie Jean (Fisher) Hoople, passed Wednesday, March 9, 2011.
