A thought from the scriptures

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. - Psalm 116:15

"Frequently, death comes as an intruder," President Thomas S. Monson, then second counselor in the First Presidency, said during the April 1994 general conference. "It is an enemy that suddenly appears in the midst of life's feast, putting out its lights and its gaiety. Death lays its heavy hand upon those dear to us and, at times, leaves us baffled and wondering. In certain situations, as in great suffering and illness, death comes as an angel of mercy. But to those bereaved, the Master's promise of peace is the comforting balm which heals: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.I go to prepare a place for you, . . . that where I am, there ye may be also.'"How I pray that all who have loved then lost might know the reality of the Resurrection and have the unshakable knowledge that families can be forever."
