I pray we all experience God's peace today and everyday after that.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 12:27

We little knew that morning that God was going to call our name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories. Your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.

Mother, save me a seat!
