  • My condolences to the Buxcel family. I know at this difficult time no words can take away the pain of losing a love one to death, but I would like to share a comforting promise God has made for those who have fallen asleep in death at John 5:28,29 it says; "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out." What joy that will be to welcome our love back in the future resurrection here on a paradise earth. ~ SO Midlothian Il (3/19/2018)
