    Please accept my sympathy. I have found it extremely comforting to read God's word, the bible, at times like these. According to 2Corinthians 1:3,4 God is the Father of tender mercies and of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations. He truly cares for bereaved ones. In his word the bible he has provided clear and comforting answers for all who have experienced the loss of a loved one. More than that, the bible reveals a glorious prospect that God has promised - the resurrection. Scriptures such as John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15 and 1Thessalonians 4:13,14 all tell of a resurrection. This resurrection gives us the hope of being reunited with our loved ones. Please know that this will be accomplished by means of God's Kingdom which is mentioned at Daniel 2:44 and Matthew 6:9, 10. You can be confident that this will occur because Hebrews 6:18 lets us know that it is impossible for God to lie. It is my hope that you are strengthened by these thoughts. May you read them from your own copy of the bible, meditate on them and gain faith in seeing your loved one again by means of the resurrection.

    We will miss you...Your laugh, your loving ways, your giving and kindness to all. You were the best listener and cheerleader when we needed you to be. I'll miss all those daily calls to you keeping up with the politics and other news. We will forever keep you in our prayers and in our hearts. Love you Mom, your family in Massachusetts
