All of us, living in this world, have or will experience the pain and loss associated with the passing of a loved one. The longer we live in this world, the more people we will come to loose. In these times, words can rarely express our grief. This is certainly the case for me and for many of my family and extended family, who are experiencing this grief on this day. It is during these times we can only find comfort from the Lord, who has given us the gift of life. Yet for all who come to know Him, there is another eternal life, which cannot be taken away, even unto our departure of this body and this world. It is my deepest prayer, that those whom I love dearly will come to know Him, who willingly gave His life, that we may live eternally in His house forever.
Yours in Christ,
