Hi. I just read the obituary you wrote for your father. It was beautiful.

I volunteer in the community. Something that interest me is the hope for those who have died and for those of us who loved them. Death is difficult for those of us who are left.

You mentioned your father loved the Lord. How beautiful. The scriptures tell us that God won't forget the love we show for him-Romans 6:10. This is heartening because Jesus said that all those that God remembers will live again. John 5:28,29

May that wonderful hope bring you comfort through this difficult time and on into the future until the day that promise is realized.
