  5. Sara, Eddie, David,
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this unexpected loss of your Mom. It is very hard to let go of the woman who raised you and was there for you during the good times as well as the bad. Letting go of my Mom was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, but I know that a part of her is still within me.

    Your Mom is with your Dad now and by her knowing that her children are celebrating this re-uniting adds more joy to their eternal life together.
    I can almost see her excitement and the tears of joy as they hold one another in an eternal embrace, covered in the glowing love of a smiling Jesus and his father.

    Love and healing to each of you.
