I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my own dad less than a year ago. I will be praying for you!

Verna, my deepest sympathies and condolences to you and your loved ones! You are in my thoughts and prayers. You mentioned you had a wonderful talk with your father recently. God gave you that time with your father, and I know that memory will help you in your time of grief. I lost my parents within 2 years of each other. I was still grieving for my father when my mother suddenly passed away. I was 40 years old but felt like an orphan. But God often reminds me that I am not alone, for He is always with me. May God hold you in the palm of His hand and comfort you during your grieving process.

Amen. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Verna, in the loss of your dad. May God give you His peace. My mother went to be with the Lord around five years ago but it seems like it was just yesterday. You will always have him in your heart and take comfort in knowing that you will see him again one day. Take care and God bless.

Thank you all so much for your comforting words. It's been a very full day...full with the mighty presence of God...of reflection...tears...smiles...questions...memories ...praise to God...thanksgiving...gratitude for so many things...realization of how awesome God is, and how wonderfully he plans things out to where you give Him so much glory and heart-felt thanks for how He brought everything together so perfectly for me...warmth from friends and loved ones...and encouragement...and precious prayers...a truly full day of all good things.

I've grown today...spiritually...in strength...and in knowledge...I understand some things so much better than I did this morning when I woke up, before I heard the news of my father. God is so good...all the time.

I love you all..and thank you so much for being here for me...it means a lot to me.

Love in Christ,
