Sorry to hear of your mother’s passing, how happy we will be when God brings about his promise.

4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with you
