It’s difficult to move on when you know that she is gone…Gone beyond our reach,leaving this mortal world behind. But she has left us with memories that no one can take away, memories that will bring forth a smile and conquer the painful tears. It is time to remember her smiling, till we see her next in Heavenly Bliss. My God be with your family during this time, In my thoughts and prayers.

The loss of a loved one in death, is a painful and difficult experience. A time when there is a need for comfort. It is my hope that you will find comfort from prayer to “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials.” 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. Confident that you can throw all your anxiety (cares or worries) on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7.
