    Losing one’s parent is rough, regardless of their age or ours. She would not want us to be sad.
    Your Mom had longed to be with your Dad for years, now they complete one another again! Both have restored bodies free of pain. May knowing both are enjoying the glory of God together be a great comfort to you.
    My heart breaks for yours.
