Dearest Precious Mommy,
We all miss you so very much. It is difficult to believe it has been a year since you left us. But we know you are still with us all, although not in your physical body. You are in a much better place with Jesus! We all must cope with our missing you as our own selfishness wants you back with us; we know you are in a place now where you would not want to leave to come back to this hurting world; to feel the sadness and pain that is ever present here. You are in a wonderful place in heaven that God promised no more tears, no more pain, and being there is better than life. We do miss you greatly, hurt that you are not here to hug and talk with, but it is our own desires that keep us in pain instead of being glad you are out of yours. I wish you could tell each one of us how much better it is for you where you are, and that you are just waiting for us, in God's time, to see us all again, and for the rest of eternity! How wonderful it will be to know we will never lose you again once we join you there. Jesus calls each one of us to believe in Him so that we all may be together with Him forever. I pray everyone will believe that so we will. It saddens me to think some are rejecting that, when really it is what we should all be clinging to with promised hope of being together forever.
Not a day goes by that I am not hurting because of my missing you, so I must remind myself that it is temporary until we see you again. What better hope can there be than a promise from God Himself that those who He calls His own will be together forever in Heaven?! No more goodbyes! It is just a "see you later"! My hope is in the One Who makes all things and is in control. God very God is perfect and will not fail, or make a mistake. And He never breaks a promise. We cannot even begin to think that we, as His creation, could possibly know more than Him, or tell Him what to do. In the end, we will see His plan and it will all make sense. Until then, I know we will miss you to the core of our souls, and the pain will be a shadow over us. The hope is what makes it bearable. We love and miss you Mommy. More than words can express, or tears can be counted. I love you Mommy. I love our family and how you and Daddy raised us. I hope we can all live our lives to reflect the love we were taught and shown. To be happy as you have always wanted us to be, no matter what our circumstances. Thank you for loving us they way you did, and do. I love you! Love, Diana
