I'm sorry for your loss. Death is such a painful event that it's called an enemy in the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26. But Jesus gave us a hope in the Bible at John 11:25: "I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." So, we will be able to see our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. Then we will never have to lose them again. Why can we say that? Because God has promised us this in the Bible at such scriptuares as Isaiah 25:8, Isaiah 26:19, and Revelation 21:3-5. Isn't this good news? Please read these scriptures in your own Bible. Sincerely, Rosemarie

God moves in his time. He whispered in her ear, Her rest came peacefully, and she faded into that eternal existance to whatch over young family as a good mother would. I remember your mom, and please allow me to say that there is no greater love, other the love of God, a mother is the glue that holds a family together. be strong and bond as she would have you to. Be blessed, Much love in the days to come, she's fine.

Colonel Lipscomb
