Jettie, I am very sorry to read of your Mother's passing. While I am aware that she has left to return to our God, we do & will mourn deeply. I wish I could tell you that you will quickly feel better, that's not true.....this grief will not go away. You are going to feel better but then that huge wave of grief hits in your face & you are inconsolable. With time, prayer and love from God & others, you will return to joy again. It's been five years since my Mom died and 19 since Daddy died and I cope well but it's always there. I promise that our Lord has promised to never leave you and He won't. Know that you are being lifted up to God for Him, to heal you. Know that His love will heal you. We all grieve, just not all the same way so just do it, without worrying about what someone else thinks. Please give Robbie my love & condolences. God bless as you walk this journey. Teresa L. Thomas
