Sammie and family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss: But we know that Coleen loved the Lord, and served him: So you can take comfort in knowing you will not only see her again, but you will all be together again. This life is but a preparing place for our real home and life for this is earthy and temporal but where Coleen is now will be eternal, for here we prepare to go Home, there we are home forever never to say good bye again, take comfort dear Sammie, your Mom is now Home.
I am praying for you to receive strength as you walk through this valley of grief, our Lord will place angels in front, on your left and your right and behind you to hold and comfort you until you can walk out of this valley of grief into the sunshine once again. I am praying for you, the grandchildren and the family.
Jo Good
