Comfort and peace to the family of Mrs. Akers. , She was truly a capable woman and I know she will be missed by family and friends. As you prepare to part ways with her, please keep in mind the hope that God gives us of being reunited with our loved ones by means of the promised resurrection. At John 5:28-29, his word the Bibles tells us "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out . . .". What a wonderful blessing to look forward to.
