Dear family and friends;
Please allow me to express our sincere heartfelt condolences to you my dearest family and friends. I am sorry that we could not be here in person, but we are with you in spirit. We share in the grief and sorrow of the moment. I have greatly appreciated aunt Emma over the years. In my eyes she was always a little dynamo – so full of life - bouncing here and there as she worked. I always remember her big smile and her good attitude toward life. I enjoyed listening to her jolly laugh. She always had such a big heart full of love for everyone. I looked forward to every time her and uncle Ralph would come to visit and when we went to visit them I always remember those fabulous home cooked meals. She could put the most delicious meal on the table. We will greatly miss aunt Emma who has gone on to be with her Savior. She has gone on ahead ~ to her heavenly home ~ and is as Fanny Crosby wrote; “Safe in the arms of Jesus” awaiting a day of glorious reunion. As I think of that day I think of the challenge that leaves for those of us who are left behind. Are we ready for that reunion day? Are we preparing ourselves for the Kingdom of Heaven so that we can be part of that glorious reunion day with our loved one? I would like to share with you what I believe aunt Emma would say to us right now, if she were able. It comes in the way of a poem;
This isn’t death – it’s glory. It is not dark – it’s light It isn’t stumbling, groping Or even faith – it’s sight This isn’t grief – it’s having My last tear wiped away. It’s sunrise, It’s morning Of eternal day. If you could see the beauty Of the garden I’m walking through; If you could feel the touch of His hand You would want to walk here too. Where pain can no more touch me Where sorrow can never be You would be glad I slipped away To this beautiful land of eternity. My life has been full, I have savored much’ Good family, good friends, Happy times, a loved one’s touch. So when your days are over, And night is drawing nigh, I pray you too will walk with ~ My precious Lord and I.
Our prayers go with you; James & Marie Mack
