Dear Jimmy
I want to send my condolences for this time of trouble you are going thru. I know your wife is with the Lord.I know she died a believer.Scripture says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Scripture also says that the Lord rejoices at the death of one of His saints. I know it is hard to comprehend these things
but the Word of God is true and God cannot lie.
