“The death of a Christian is truly a bittersweet event and very precious in God's sight. We cry and we grieve at the great loss we feel while left on this earth without them. We are lonely and find it hard to embrace what has happened. But precisely because we know Christ, we can also rejoice that our loved one is now home safe with our Beautiful Savior and reunited with other loved ones who have gone before. We have no idea the infinite joy that they are experiencing and that we too will experience someday. Be comforted. God loves you and understands your tears, collecting every one of them in a bottle. Take all the time you need to be sad. It's OK. Soon enough you will be able to carry on with the work God has for you to do. May God richly bless you all. Much Love, Kathy”

Fay was such a wonderful friend, So loving and caring. I would get off work and drive over to her house and dose in my car in her driveway until the time for bible study. I will miss her so much. Most of my friends in our bible study group have gone to be with the Lord. At least I know we will be reunited again in heaven.
