It is at times like these that I feel compelled to offer words of comfort, yet knowing full well that anything I say is in adequate. So please take comfort in knowing that God left us another comforter in the form of the Holy Spirit. I know you will miss your mother in this earthly realm but there is the promise of a sweet reunion in heaven that is everlasting. Thomas Moore said it best, “Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.”
