Death is just a natural thing, like the closing of a door, as we start upon a journey to a new and distant shore. So let your grief be softened and yield not to despair, she has been placed in the loving Father's care. Life on earth is a transient affair, just a few brief years in which to prepare for a life that is free from pain and tears, where time is not counted in hours or years.
For death is only the method God chose to colonize Heaven with the souls of those who by their apprentice on earth proved worthy to dwell in the land of new birth. So, death is not said...it is a time for elation, a joyous transition...the soul's emigration to a place where the soul is safe and free to live with God through eternity.
