Thank you so much for sending me this announcement. I am so sorry for your loss but happy for your Mom’s release back to her divine home. You have loved her well and I hope you will find peace in the knowledge that your love is everlasting.
She will always be with you.
Love and hugs,
I am sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort give you strength during this difficult time. God promises to soon bring our loved ones that have passed away back to life again at Isaiah 26:19, John 5:28, 29; and he also promises to remove all sufferings and death forever at Revelation 21:3-5. May these heartwarming promises soon to come give you comfort as you cope with the days ahead.
