May James Batley Miller RIP, "...Everything he has made pretty in its time. Even time indefinite he has put in their heart... I have come to know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good during one’s life; and also that every man should eat and indeed drink and see good for all his hard work. It is the gift of God." Ecclesiastes 3:10-13
"The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, ... to a resurrection of life." John 5:28,29
