My sincere condolences on Eva's passing, I'm sure she was a great person. Sometimes when someone we love dies, we wonder if all life offers, is death at the end. at Matthew 22:31,32 God said "I'm the God of the living" He was speaking of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob as if they were living, even though they had been dead more than 300 yrs. Indicating that the resurrection hope, is sure to b filled, by means of Gods kingdom where both the righteous & unrighteous will be resurrected. Acts 24:15, Rev 21:3,4

My brother Pat told me about your mother's passing. I am so sorry for your loss and the sadness that goes along with loosing a mother.
