Hello Jim and Alex, I am aquainted with the loss of — my special person –going to heaven. I am praying for you. The scripture that helped me move one more second forward– Maybe it can be a blessing/help to you! Isaiah 66:13
As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
God promises to comfort you. Lean on that promise like a delicacy. He wont fail you.
When I moved in temporarily after divorce with Paul. Tara took me and shawn around to as many pre-schools as we could find. we were going to get shawn in pre-school, then get me fulltime employed. I am in awle of her wisdom, as I listened to her advice, compassion, and she helped me set new goals for my life. I was better for it. Now, heaven is that much sweeter, and I can look forward to seeing her there when i arrive. If I can be a help in anyway, dont hesitate to contact me. You guys are always welcome in the Hocking Hills! sincerely, patty

We as humans were created for Love and to be able to experience that Love. And no one can have Joy unless they know and experience Love. It was evident that the life Tara lived with Jim was filled with Joy and Love. to the family and friends of Tara and Jim, Take comfort from God’s promise, Rest in the truthfulness of His Word, and allow the peace of the Lord fall on your spirit. I thank you, Tara, for reminding all of us the importance of having Love in our lives.
