He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the Earth. For Jehovah himself has spoken it.” -Isaiah 25:8

“Into the Light”
There is a saying; “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
That is why it is called a present.”
Although nothing lasts forever; your light, heart, and soul will always be remembered.
When the sun rises, I’ll think of you.
When the sun sets, I’ll see it through.
You are no longer with us, so we will weep and cry.
But not for long, as we know there is a chance, we will see you again in paradise.
- Loving Granddaughter, Jordan Parran- Jones Scott
