Little did we know
When we woke up that morning
The sorrow that day would bring,
The call was sudden,
the shock severe,
To part with the one we loved so dear.
You were gone before we realized
And only God knew the reason why,
Your presence we miss,
Your memories we treasure,
We will keep you near forever.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And our silent tears still flow,
For what it mean to lose you
No one will ever know.

7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:7-8 (KJV)
I know without reservation or doubt that the moment that my dear mother was gone from her body, she was present with her Lord.
And, I know that I will see her again. There will be a family reunion.
13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (KJV)
