|death does not kill off the spirit ... yes, we miss the bodily, emotional presence of a loved one but we shouldn't forget death is a state of transformation ... though it is natural to miss them, memories. can help keep them alive ..|

|MARYGRACE, MY DEAR SISTER IN CHRIST, I FEEL YOUR PAIN AND I SEARCH FOR THE WORDS THAT WILL HELP YOU TO FEEL SOME TYPE OF RELIEF. I PRAYED AND THEN I THOUGHT OF SOMETHING AND I WAS WONDERING IF YOU MIGHT LOOK AT RICHARD'S PARTING FROM ANOTHER ASPECT...JUST FOR A MINUTE. DO YOU REALIZE SOMETHING? YOU ARE CRYING, BUT RICHARD IS NOT CRYING. YOU ARE IN PAIN, BUT RICHARD IS NOW FREE FROM PAIN. YOU ARE LAMENTING AND MOURNING BUT RICHARD IS REJOICING IN THE PRESENCE OF HIS REDEEMER...HIS MAKER AND CREATOR. RICHARD HAS MET JESUS! AND RICHARD DOESN'T FEEL 'LOST' AT ALL...HE IS FINALLY 'HOME'. GOD SAW RICHARD'S SUFFERING AND TOOK HIM HOME BECAUSE HE LOVES RICHARD AND DIDN'T WANT HIM TO SUFFER ANYMORE. DO YOU THINK RICHARD WANTS TO GO BACK INTO THAT PHYSICAL BODY THAT HURT HIM SO MUCH? I DON'T THINK SO. I THINK HE IS HAPPY TO AT LAST BE 'FREE' FROM HIS PAINS. NOW WHAT ABOUT YOU, MY FRIEND? WILL YOU SEEK TO BE 'FREE' FROM THE PAIN OF 'GOD'S WILL' FOR RICHARD? YOU LOVED YOUR HUSBAND, YES...BUT JESUS, HE LOVED HIM BEST. I BEG YOU TO PRAY, MY DEAR...PRAY AS YOU NEVER HAVE PRAYED BEFORE AND ASK GOD FOR THE STRENGTH TO ACCEPT 'HIS WILL' FOR RICHARD. MAY THE PRESENCE AND LOVE OF ALMIGHTY GOD SURROUND YOU AND MAY YOU BE INFUSED WITH THE 'PEACE' THAT SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING. LOOK UP, MARYGRACE...LOOK UP! LET THE LIGHT OF JESUS' 'HEALING POWER' ENCOMPASS YOU TOTALLY; HEART, MIND AND SOUL. REMEMBER THAT THE LOVE RICHARD HAD FOR YOU CAME THROUGH HIM FROM ABOVE AND THAT LOVE HAS NOT GONE ANYWHERE. THAT LOVE REMAINS. 'ALLOW' JESUS TO DO FOR YOU WHAT YOU CANNOT DO FOR YOURSELF...'ALLOW' HIM TO STRENGTHEN YOU. IF YOU WANT TO BE FREE FROM THE AGONY YOU ARE GOING THROUGH, HE WILL HELP YOU. JESUS IS WAITING...ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS...ASK. I AM PRAYING FOR YOU AND I LOVE YOU. YOU ARE NOT GOING THROUGH THIS ALONE, YOU HAVE A FRIEND AND I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT YOUR DEN FRIENDS, FAMILY OR OTHER ACQUAINTANCES...BUT I KNOW THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS. YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST. JOYCE|

|Mary Grace: I'm so very sorry for your loss of Richard and today have read this poem and your previous poem of him passing away July 6. My heart aches for you and I truly feel your pain and will hope and pray for you that with each new day time will heal. Grief is a slow process, but believe me things will get better for you. Wonderful memories are what you have now. Hold on to them and let Richard flood your life right now with those wonderful memories of you and him. God grant you the strength to go on and one day you will be blessed and will see Richard again. You will be in my prayers and God love you.
