I am sorry to learn of your family loss. The passing of a love one is painful. You have my deepest sympathy. I'd like to share scripture that may bring your comfort and hope.
1Thes. 4:13, 14 reads...Moreover brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who are sleeping in death, so that you may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope. For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus.
John 11:25 lets us know this...Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies will come to life.
Daniel 2:11 also lets us know...And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up, some to everlasting life.........
John 6:40 tells us why these words are faithful and true...For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life and I will resurrect him on the last day.
I sincerely hope these scriptures bring your family comfort and hope.

Heaven gained a sweet angle on nov 27 2017. There has never been a more caring person than this sweet lady whom I loved dearly. She has always been here for my children and always welcomed us into her home with open arms. I love all her children and want you all to know I have you all in my prayers during this difficult time. Love you all and welcome you to my house any time. Remember all the good memories we have with her. For a few memories Canasta till wee hours of morning . Roller skating, playing ball, jump rope, hop scotch, and memories go on and on. We have some sweet memories.
