Steve and family, I was so sorry to learn of the passing of your Mother. I know how much it hurts and one thing pops into my mind, as we had visitation for my Daddy. Mr. Marion McClain walked out onto the porch and told me something, "First, forget about the ones in there having a "class reunion in the next room and remember this, You may not feel this way now or that you ever will, but in "TIME" you will deal with this loss in a totally different way," and he was right. May God give you peace right now, and offer peace and love to you and your family as you do every time a family loses a loved one. God Bless you all....................

I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the resurrection promise at John 5:28,29 that reads; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all that are in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.
