May she rest in peace. My prayers and heart go out to her family at this time. Gob Bless.
Dearest Jesus, who wept at the death of your friend
and taught that they who mourn shall be comforted,
grant us the comfort of your presence in our loss.
Send Your Holy Spirit to direct us
lest we make hasty or foolish decisions.
Send Your Spirit to give us courage
lest through fear we recoil from living.
Send Your Spirit to bring us your peace
lest bitterness, false guilt, or regret take root in our hearts.

The Lord has given.
The Lord has taken away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.


O sweet mother Mary,
who knew the sadness of mourning those your heart loved most,
Jesus, your Son,
and Joseph, your devoted spouse,

pray for us in our time of loss.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the entire family. For right now, there is no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However, 2 Corinthians 4:7 says that God can give us, “... power beyond what is normal...”, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer mourn or forget our loved one. It means we recover. We recover because of our hope. The hope Jesus Christ talked about found in John 5:28 which says, “... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out...”. Jesus was speaking of the resurrection. That is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us and keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. One way that God comforts us today is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now, during this time of sorrow. If you wish, you may contact me to ascertain more about the resurrection hope found in The Holy Bible.
