Sad, thankful and united

Today we had a family meeting in our house. One year ago my father went to meet his heavenly Father. Of course we miss him very much, but most of all we are thankful for his life and for the great example he has left us. It's good to have such a strong family around you when you have to go through difficult days like these. Many family members couldn't be with us physically, but through our prayers we can draw together - even when we are worlds apart! We all take much comfort in these words from the Bible - Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. Source
