    The Lord takes us home to enjoy his mighty goodness. For those left behind; he fills our hearts and life with his goodness and gives us the strength to carry us to our day to meet him. I'm praying for all of your hearts to mend and for you to receive the comfort, only he can provide. God bless you all as he has blessed your mother.
