So very sorry for your loss. I worked with Linda many years ago at Social Services. She was the most knowledgeable person I ever knew, in the area where we worked. I'm sure her legacy will be remembered for a long time.

While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Linda, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will reflect on seemingly small, yet precious memories. This occurs, especially when we experience the loss of someone loved. However, take confidence in knowing that just as you have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God can and will restore perfect life to those in His memory as expressed in the video link ** Please accept my condolences during this time of distress.

My warmest condolences in the loss of your beloved Mom. During this most difficult time we need comfort to help us cope. The Bible describes beautifully how God is willing to support us in this time of grieving. Psalms 73:21, 23 states: “But my heart was sour, and deep inside I felt sharp pain. But now I am continually with you; you have taken hold of my right hand”. Because He really knows how we feel, He has also provided by means of his beloved Son, Jesus Christ, a wonderful hope: the resurrection of our loved ones (John 5:28,29).
