We all come to the time again when we say goodbye to these people known and loved and to those who did not have anyone to love them. We come from different parts, different lives, different worlds but we all know one thing. Those who have died now have broken through the veil, been raised to the kingdom and is now in the bosom of Christ our Savior and Lord. We know that they wait for us there and while we miss them on this world, we all know that the future for each of us will be with them, in our Lord’s kingdom.
To quote the great Christian writer, C.S. Lewis “And He (God) welcomed them home and the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write or say them. And for them this is the end of all the earthly stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it is only the beginning of the real story. All their lives in this world had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they are beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
