Death of a loved one

Poem About the Death of a Loved One by Aimee

I know that you’re dead and you’re gone for good
It’s hard to accept but now I’ve understood
Nothing last forever, even if it’s good or it’s bad
Now you up in heaven it makes me feel glad
That finally your pain and sadness has ended
Just like the way god had intended
At this time you’re standing at those big golden gates
Up in heaven your new life awaits
I know you’re looking down on us wanting us to be strong
And I know you have been all along
We all miss you and that’s definitely true
When we think of all the times we had with you
For now you’ve gone up high in the sky
Because this is your time to say goodbye

Amidst sorrow and suffering, we should find comfort in God. We can remember positive joyful memories and we can find hope and joy, knowing heaven is the ultimate place of peace and happiness.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1-14 – “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to search, and a time to give up; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to mend; a time to be silent, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”

In honor of Pura Shepard 3/12/1926 – 4/25/2013
