I’m so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you must feel. I have found comfort in scriptures like Job 14:14,15 which remind me that God cares so deeply for us that he yearns for the day when he will bring us back to life on earth (John 5:28, 29). I hope that these words bring you comfort as well. You may contact me personally if you wish to know more about the hope that God gives us in his word that there will be a resurrection.

No longer will Tom & I see Lorene working in the backyard with Ben. Can no longer visit over the fence. Lorene and Ben have been good neighbors for a long time. Lorene is now in a better place the rest of us can only guess what it is like. We hurt for Ben knowing how much he misses the love of his life. I spoke to Ben on the phone and I got a good feeling Lorene and Ben were soulmates, a team that was meant to be. It is not always easy but we try to rejoice in the fact that Lorene is now where she is meant to be. Good bye Lorene and Rest In Peace.
