I am so very sorry for the loss of your father, Martha. I know that there is absolutely nothing anyone can say or do to make this pain go away, but I hope you find comfort in knowing that we all love you and are praying for you during this difficult time. I pray that you feel the loving arms of Jesus wrap around you during these next few days and that you find peace in knowing your Father has now been made well. What a joyful reunion that will be for you again one day in Heaven.

Cherish all the happy memories that you shared with him over the years. Take your time to love on your family and reminisce. After my Dad passed, those next few days with my family were my most treasured times because we were able to lean on each other for strength. When you have moments where you feel so totally overwhelmed with sorrow and sadness (which will happen), just know it is perfectly okay and you will make it through it. Just take it one day, one hour at a time. You are not alone. God promises to never leave or forsake you.

"The LORD gives His people strength. The LORD blesses them with peace." Psalm 29:11

Big hugs to you sweet friend. Love you!
