    It is those left behind that weep and moan
    It is those left behind that wish for one more moment under the sun
    It is those left behind to deal with your absence
    But God…
    You have traveled to God’s kingdom and are in the arms of Christ His Son
    And it is for those left behind to that one day God will come.
    See you in the morning sis.
    Love you

    The saying is “You’re in a better place”. That’s true, and one day we’ll be there rejoicing with you. But for now, those of us who mourn your not being here, we must stay focused on the task at hand and that is to see you again. You will be missed!
    Love to the family in Christ,
    Karen Seals-Brox
