Comfort can come by remembering and re-reading the promises given to us by our Creator/Savior/Spirit of Love. They are true. I loved the way his whole face would "smile" when he spoke. Look for that same smile of your husband, dad, grandpa in each other! Prayers for you all. Powerful to Pray to him, as now he is in that communion of saints.
