This world, however beautiful,
Was never meant to be
The place that we would call our home
For all eternity.
And though we would not choose to leave,
A loving God knows best,
And in His time,
He lifts us to a place of peace and rest.

I am sorry for your loss. Continue to reflect on your cherished memories together. Always remember that God cares for you and is “close to the broken-hearted.” May you call on Him in prayer for comfort and strength during this difficult time. Psalm 34: 18

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beloved Carol. I lost my sister on the 31st and what's giving me comfort is the loving promise from our heavenly Father Jehovah that we can see our loved ones again right here on earth as brought out in John 5:28,29 when He awakens them from their memorial tombs.
