Love leaves a memory Those we love don’t go away They walk beside us everyday Unseen, unheard but always near Still loved, still missed and very dear For death leaves a heartache No one can heal And love leaves a memory no one can steal

To the family, sorry for your loss. May you find comfort from God’s word the Bible. Jehovah God hates death. He views death as an enemy. 1 Corinthians 15:26 His son Jesus Christ said “All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out “ John 5:28,29 so we have a promise and a hope of seeing our love ones again.

My condolences to you, and many happy memories of Gloriastine be with you. But when sadness comes, may these promises from Jehovah God help you to endure. "Do not be anxious....but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7; Isaiah 25:8 NWT.
