    We were blessed to call her our "friend". Let the Lord's words be comfort for her family and friends: SHE IS WITH ME Would I have told you if it were not so?Truly, I have prepared a placefor you, for your loved ones,that where I am you may be also.For My Father's house has many rooms,room enough for all who yearn for My presence.Trust Me for this though your heart be troubled now.Lay aside all earthly woes.My Kingdom is not of this world.It is more glorious than you can ever imagine! Wipe away those tears.I gave My life that you may no longer sorrow, nor weep.Your loved one is with Me. © Constance Vanides God's Comfort For Today's Needs www.Godcares.org
