Very sorry to read of the passing of your dear loved one. It seems that life is such a precious gift and yet so short-lived for the time we exist. The bible has comfort and encouragment for you and yours. God holds out a wonderful hope for all those in the grave. At John 11:25 Jesus said " I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE. HE THAT EXERCIES FAITH IN ME EVEN THOUGH HE DIES, WILL COME TO LIFE,"
There are nine accounts in the bible of ones who were resurrected. That should strentgthened our faith that God can bring back to life the billions of dead people he holds within his perfect memory. (John 5-28,29) What a blessed reason to hope in God!
We all have been the gift of ur memories. When a loved one becomes a memory, that memory turns into a treasure that will bring great joy.
Continue to lean on Jehovah God for the strength you need at this sad time. (Psalms 83-18)
Our deepest sympathies to Dan, Trisha, the girls and the entire family for your loss....our prayers and thoughts are with you.
