  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. I too have felt the pain of losing some of those I love in death. I hope you are being surrounded by loving family and friends and taking care of yourself during this difficult time. The God of all comfort provides hope for those who have passed away and comfort for those who have survived. We are promised that our loved ones will return to us one day very soon. As Jesus resurrected his friend, Lazarus, and many others, you will see your loved one again. (John 5:28, 29) How the True God longs to do that! (Job 14:14, 15). Until then, may you continue to keep his memory warm in your hearts until you see him happy and healthy again one day very soon. Prayers and thoughts are with you . . .

    I hope you find the time to be comforted by the additional information that can be found at

  3. Sorry for your loss Rick. Sending blessings to you and your family.

  4. Rick & Beth,
    Rick, we can see the resemblance in the picture of your beautiful mom! It is very difficult to lose a mom since a mom is the one person who’s been with us from before birth. Moms hold the keys to all our experiences, especially as a child. Moms know everything about us – the good and the bad and love us in spite of our faults. Moms come the closest to unconditional love – except, of course, our Lord and Savior. May He, who is omniscient, wrap His arms around you and comfort you during this difficult time. Yes, we know that it might be best for her. Yes, we know that she is happier and better off. Yes, we know that she is reunited with family & friends. Petitions for your grief and comfort are being sent to the Great Comforter.
