Dear Ed, Jean, Donna and Family: My sincere condolences on the passing of your mother and grandmother. It is said when we lose a parent, we lose our history. That is why it is important that we remember all the stories, life lessons and advise they gave us so we can share it with our children and in that way we can keep them alive in our heart. Also, keep in mind the blessed and wonderful hope we have of seeing them again in the coming resurrection of Christ (Acts 24:15). Yes, and earthly Paradise where their will be no more sickness, old age or death. (Isaiah 33:24, Revelation 21:4). This is a promise from Almighty God who cannot lie (Titus 1:2)
