May you all be comforted in knowing she is so free to live again, with no sorrow, no pain, no tears, no bondages of any kind this earth holds us down with, but the greatest revelation that you will be united once again, and be together for all of time and eternity! What blessed hope we as Christians have the greatest treasure of knowing and seeing it coming to pass! Praying for your faith to comfort you!
