I recently lost my grandmother and know this is a hard time when comfort and kindness can’t fully soothe the pain of loss. Please know that even strangers like myself are praying for your family. It may not be helpful now, but in the future I hope you draw comfort as I have from John 5:28, 29 which helps assure us that all those in the memorial tombs will receive a resurrection and be reunited with us. We can both look forward to welcoming back my grandmother along with your lost loved one when that time comes.
Pam, I am so incredibly sorry about your mom’s passing, but I know that she is rejoicing with the Lord, and will be there to welcome all of us in due time. I love you and am praying for strength and courage for your entire family in the days ahead.
Please know that I am thinking of you and your family at this time. May God’s peace be with you. Cherish the memories you created with her. I pray that the love of family and friends will comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead.
John 14 : 1-3
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; Trust also in me. In my father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
