To all those needing comfort.

It is sometimes difficult to believe that we are in safe hands.

Dearest Forum friends, we have been given a bitter pill to swallow, yet at the same time Pse 116 says that what has happened is precious in the Lords sight. Thank you for your love, prayer and support during our journey which started on 30 Jan. and ended at 14h00 today, when Brenda was fetched to be in Almighty God's presence for all eternity. :cry:

I think this could have also been a wish from Brenda. :)

"Miss Me But Let Me Go"

I came to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little-but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me-but let me go

For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me but let me go.
