I am so sorry for the loss of your precious momma. I never had the privilege of meeting her, though I have known Jody for many years. I know how very hard it is to say goodbye to those we love so dearly. My prayers are with you Jody and your family. God Bless.

My thoughts are with Billie’s family. It is so painful to lose someone, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 “And he will swallow up death forever…” He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). I  hope these words give all of you comfort.
