I am so very sorry for your loss. The Bible makes this comforting promise: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, He saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) It also assures us: "Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous one to fall." (Psalm 55:22) May these thoughts bring you a measure of comfort at this difficult time.

Brent, Stacy, & family, I remember Mrs. Hamilton as such a sweet, loving lady. Be sure you have a heart picture of her entrance into heaven, being welcomed by Dewayne, her parents, others who were waiting for her, and most of all, by Jesus. Make it the most beautiful picture you can imagine and them remember our best is but a glimpse of God's reality. Love and prayers for all of you today as you say, "'Til we meet again."
