Offering my sincere condolences to the Family. While it may have been difficult saying goodbye please find comfort in God’s promise knowing even though she is resting for a while, John 5:28-29 says that there will be a resurrection, where our Heavenly Father promises to return to life all our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). May you find "Strength" from the love and care that surrounds you and comfort in the memories that you shared.
