I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God's promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)
Please accept my deepest condolences. Remember you are not alone at this difficult time. "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." Psalm 46:1
Jerry, I am sorry for your loss. Your mother was a sweetheart for sure.
