Susan on a road trip was the best driver and didn't take any guff from me when I kept asking the age old questions are we there yet? Having enough of me She exclaimed we will drop you off on the side of the road. Great memories

I'm very sorry for your loss, Jeff. But if there's a God--and I believe there is-- Susan is with Him. I'm confident of this because my main memory of her is the time she spoke to me of her faith, how certain she was in it. Take care, Douglass

To the Family, I want to express how sorry to read about your loss. Losing a family member can be very painful. When I lost my father, I found comfort in what the Bible teaches. I fully believe, as the Bible teaches, that God will restore paradisaic conditions to our earth and that he yearns to bring back to life on earth those who have died—including our family members. (Job 14:14, 15; John 5:28, 29) We can look forward to the day when we will hold and embrace them again. Every time we hear the word “paradise,” that hope warms our hearts! In the meantime, we can take comfort in the fact that they are in God’s memory. I hope the same thoughts may bring your family comfort in dealing with your loss.
