You will forever be in our hearts. "Then our Lord stood before me, with warmth and love in His eyes. He said," Every time you gave your life to Me, it became my life, My hardships, and My struggles. Each point of light in your life is when you stepped aside and let Me shine through, until there was more of me than there was of you. May all your quilts be threadbare and worn, allowing Christ to shine through!"
