When our love ones dies, we grieve as if there's no hope. But the Word teaches us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. So we don't weep as if there is no hope, there is an empty void in our lives but the sweet memories of our love one lives on forever in our heart. Please find comfort in knowing that others are praying with you and for you during these dark days ahead, look to Jesus the author and finisher our faith
