I am so sorry for your loss of Lori. Though your hearts are breaking, God will soon do as he promised. He wii remove death, sorrow and pain. Most importantly, He wii bring those sleeping in the graves back to our outstretched arms (John 5:28,29). What a joyful time that will be! Until that joyful time time, may your precious memories of Lori console you.

May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. “God is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.”​—Psalms 34, verses 18-19.
