Victoria lived a long and gracious life, and was very much admired by all who knew her. It is very difficult to say "Goodbye", but keeping in mind the words of Jesus, who promised, "Just as the FATHER raised him from the dead, and made him alive, so too the SON makes alive. (John 5:21) So, may all reflect on this promise to receive comfort, and peace by not saying "Goodbye", but saying "Till we meet and embrace again."
