  24. Tori Says:

    Although I did not know Dwight “Heavy D” personally, I was a fan of his music. It is certainly evident by that he was well-loved and had a warm & wonderful spirit. We have all felt the agony of losing a loved one in death. To the Family: Please accept my deepest condolences in your time of sorrow. I just wanted to share some thoughts that have been a comfort for me and my family during times such as these: At John 11:25, Jesus told Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” Shortly after speaking those words, Jesus resurrected her brother Lazarus back to life right here on earth. Very soon God’s Kingdom (Matthew 6:10) will permanently remove death, resurrect our loved ones, and restore all of our bodies back to their original perfect state. May the future promise of seeing Dwight again sustain you during the difficult days ahead. Most truly, Tori
