I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Ivory. Our Heavenly Father gives us hope for a future time where we will be blessed with a new earth free from pain and sorrow caused by losing our loved ones; Revelations 21: 3-5. As you reflect on and cherish the beautiful memories shared, may God provide the strength and comfort needed to endure; Psalm 94: 18, 19.

For we do not weep like those who have no hope. Our hope lies in Jesus the only LIVING son of God and our belief in his birth, death, burial and resurrection. As he promised to those who believe, he has gone to prepare a place for us that where he is we will be also. Our absence from these mortal bodies in which our spirit is housed can no longer contain the spirit.. We put on immortality and we fly away to be with the Lord.

Take courage in knowing that \\\"Mata\\\" believed in God and his son, Jesus!
