I am writing to give your family comfort from the scriptures. I promise you, the scriptures say YOU WILL SEE LAWRENCE CURTNER AGAIN ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES.
God has resurrected humans in the past
John 11:39-44
39 Jesus said: “Take the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it has been four days.” 40 Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”t 41 So they took the stone away. Then Jesus raised his eyes heavenwardu and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but I spoke on account of the crowd standing around, so that they may believe that you sent me.”v 43 When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Lazʹa·rus, come out!”w 44 The man who had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Free him and let him go.”

God is eager to do it again
1 Corinthians 15:26
26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.b
