    My heartfelt sympathies in the loss of a loving mother. I too know that pain. Death is something we will never get use to. In fact, God’s word prefer to death as a enemy. ( 1Corinthians 15:26). Very soon our loving heavenly Father will remove death once and for all and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again.
    (John 5:28,29).
