You have our deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mother. I always enjoyed bringing her Communion when she was in her home on Saturday nights.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine your pain. You can be sure God feels your pain. Isaiah 25:8 tells us: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." Jesus' promise of the resurrection is comforting as well (John 5:28,29). I hope these verses bring you some comfort as you endure.
