Fondest memories when we worshiped together at Living Hope Church, saints don't die, they just slip away. I looked forward to that great getting up morning when we shall see Him face to face. My heart is sad today , but what a joyous day when we meet again.

This is one of the most difficult times to let someone you love go. I am so sorry for your loss.
