Let us all be comforted with the knowledge that at the instant of her death, she passed into the presence of her Savior. We will mourn, but we will do so, not as those who have no hope in death. We will mourn in hope—the hope of eternal life and the hope of the resurrection of the body at the return of the Lord. Be comforted by God’s wonderful provision made possible by the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This gospel hope is sure and steadfast and will never fade away. May we who live on in the flesh take this opportunity to reflect upon nearness of eternity and determine to live our lives in light of that day.
