Remembering all the wonderful times at Thanksgiving and Easter. The awesome food, the gossip, the jokes. Your mom laughing, while turning her head and saying "Oh God!" to the many outrageous comments made in a typical get together :) Granny and your mom on the phone every day, discussing the soaps....I still follow your mom's rule of going down every isle at the grocery's a great rule!
I am deeply sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is one of the most difficult things families ever have to deal with. I have personally found comfort in the scripture at John 5:28 where it talks about a time when our loved ones in the memorial tomb will come out. In line with that thought is Revelation 21:4 where it says soon "death will be no more." So soon we can look forward to a time when not only we can be with our loved ones, but we do not have to fear losing them to death ever again. If you would like to learn more about the hope for our loved ones, please visit where there is much more info on what the bible says. Again, I express my sympathies and hope this brings you comfort in this difficult time.
