Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” May the promise of Heaven and the knowledge of being reunited give you comfort. Even in the midst of your difficult grief and pain, may God’s love and Presence lift the burden from your broken hearts. With love & care, Kim Reid Hogan
