I just talked to Bev.
She said, "Today is a hard day."
Many decisions to make.
Words we don't imagine using when we are in our 20's ...like funeral, memorial service, burial, casket. Those words.
Because it is three men involved.
Because there is much to consider and coordinate - the plans for the 'services' are still pending.
Because our families believe life is eternal.
Because we believe that families are forever.
Because of love and eternal covenants.
Because a prophet of God said these words,
"The veil which separates us from the Spirit world sometimes seems very thin to us..however, surely those who have passed beyond, can see more clearly through the veil back here to us...I believe we move and have our being in the presence of heavenly beings....We are close to our kindred...I claim we live in their presence, they see us, they are solicitous of our welfare, they love us now more than ever."
(Joseph F Smith - Gospel Doctrine pg 429)
Because of these words...we know there is comfort.
BUT - I also....
believe today is a hard day...............on both sides of the veil.
I believe Jordan - Jed - Ron are having a hard day.
Today is a hard day.
