When God has called a loved one home, the sadness left behind can cause a faithful heart to yearn for soothing peace of mind. So this prayer is for the Lord to heal the pain you're going through. And bless you with the comfort that He's always there for you.
She was a caring and loving lady and will be missed by many who loved her.
