    Although I never was able to meet you during your time on earth, I did get to meet and work with your daughter Roz and she is a wonderful God fearing young lady. I am sure she is a reflection of your love of our Lord Jesus Christ. I look forward to meeting you when I get to Heaven. We all need to remember that our time on earth is short and in Heaven is forever, although our hearts ache and will miss your presence, it is the joy that we will be together praising or Lord in the near future, that we all need to focus on especially while morning your loss.

    We're so sorry to hear you are grieving the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise. Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one?
