  1. Mitzi and family – I am so sorry for your loss of your mom to heaven. Such a profound passage – our belief is she is in “a better golden place” – yet the place in our hearts for our loved ones is now empty and hollow. But feel assured she is in GOOD hands – and her sweet spirit will live in and through you forever. You will always feel her love and hear her words of wisdom! Prayers sweet friend.

  2. My sympathy for your loss. The bible calls death an enemy and when it takes those we love, it truly is.
    We can have confidence in the hope in the bible where God will remember our dead loved ones and will bring them
    back to life on earth. Jo 5:28,29 Ps 37:11,29.
    Imagine the day when there are no more tears of sorrow and death and pain will be gone forever. Rev 21:3,4.
    May you find comfort in these promises and in the memories you cherish.

  3. When loosing a loved one it can be unbearable God knows first hand what it is like to lose someone that is why he has provided scriptures in the bible to help ones cope Isaiah.25:8.God promise soon to swallow up death forever.

  4. May my words can sum up the feelings that we may be having right now ,however we can take solace in Jesus Christ words at John.5:28,29.
