God is THE BEGINNING AND ENDING. Our God created us in HIS IMAGE. His most perfect work. He provides us with Goodness and Compassion.  He also gives us the CHOICE to return with him in Eternal Glory.
We shall join again with those family members whom we grieve for if we follow Gods path to Salvation.
My wife and I are praying for your family.
