It is with great sadness that I share in your loss. A beautiful woman of God who joyfully now is in the arms of Jesus. And so it is, for the Christian family when one of us is called Home. We mourn from the emptiness in our heart; and yet we rejoice in the Hope we have in Christ. Will we, as Christians, grieve? Oh yes; but the Promise of God helps us to endure. God bless each of you and please know that I continue to lift you to the Throne of Grace.
