One of Lillian’s favorite passages from God’s word was: “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” I Thessalonians 4:14-17
