My sister was only 75, (would have been 76 on November 15th) but had some health issues. She went to be with the Lord and her husband, Dan, and our Dad, November 3rd. Our loss, Heaven's gain. The funeral is November 10th in Lincoln, NE.
Here is a video clip of us singing together at my Mom's 100th birthday Party, April 29th of this year. Sure glad we got to do that. People who knew her and people who didn't will enjoy this song.
We rest on I Thessalonians 4:13 - 18
"But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For the we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. WHEREFORE COMFORT ONE AOTHER WITH THESE WORDS."
