    This is an Irish Blessing that I have found helpful in times of loss
    I hope it brings comfort to you as it has to me...

    Feel no guilt in laughter, he'd know how much you care.
    Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
    You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
    He'd hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
    So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
    The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
    Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
    Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
    That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
    And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
    For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
    And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.

    My sincere condolences for your great loss. Our Heavenly Father's understanding is far beyond measure. Please, take comfort in knowing that you can "Throw all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." (1Peter 5:7). In the Bible book of Acts 24:15, we read: "I have a hope toward God, which hope these men also look foward to, that there is going to be a resurrection." And it also says: "The righteous themselves will possees the earth, and they will reside forever upon it." (Psalm 37:29.) What a joyous time we have to look foward to, seeing our loved ones again.
