Karen, I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. So glad that we know that we will be with our family again some day. It has been so many years that since I have seen any of your family but I will never forget the part that you have been in my life. It was so fun to watch the DVD about your Mom. The pictures of her with you kids brought back many good memories of what a special lady she was. I hope that you are doing well and know that you will always be one of my Mutual girls. My deepest sympathy goes to you and all the family.

I am very sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. God has promised to, one day soon, eliminate death forever, along with all sickness, pain, and sorrow. (Rev.21:4) He has also promised to reunite us with our loved ones on a restored paradise earth. The Bible says he yearns to do this. (John 5:28,29; Job 14:14,15) I hope these scriptures will bring comfort to each of you.
