  • Esther & Doug Harvey

    You are not alone, we are a family. Your Dad, God and all the celestial Court are always with you.
    One day after our encounter with God, we’ll be reunited in spirit with our loved ones with the hope to be in Heaven but mainly with God our Lord Jesus-Christ. While we wait the second coming and Judgment of Jesus, in which our resurrected body will meet with our soul.
    We know what it is, since We have been passed for this as too.
    LOL !
