I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Leo Buscaglia

I am sorry to learn of your loss of Kathy Abell. The bible gives comfort and hope at Isaiah 26:19 where it reassures us that it will be a resurrection. At Revelation 21:4, 5 almighty God Jehovah promises to end tears, pain, death, and sorrow. May you have comfort as you put faith in our loving creator.
