Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear mother, Geraldine. There is no worse pain then losing a loved one to death. Many have found comfort in this Bible verse; Isaiah 25:8 which says, that God "will swallow up death forever..and will wipe away the tears from all faces." The Bible also says that God "will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."(Rev. 21:3, 4). What a wonderful time to look forward to when we will never have to deal with death again! May you find comfort in these thoughts.
