Death-The Journey beyond life-

There are remarkable similarities between birth and death.
Elder Bruce R. McConkie (LDS Church leader) said:
"We know that this ...great plan of progression
called for birth which would provide a mortal
tabernacle for our eternal spirits, and for a death
which would free those spirits from the frailties,
diseases and weaknesses of mortality."
The words birth and death both describe movement.
Birth describes our movement from the spirit world to
mortality. Death describes our movement from mortality
to the spirit world. With each movement we terminate our
existence in one place and initiate our existence in another.
When God sends forth a tiny soul
To learn the ways of earth,
A mother’s love is waiting here—
We call this wonder— birth.
When God calls home a tired soul
And stills a fleeting breath,
A Father’s love is waiting there
This too is birth— not death

"I Will Not Leave You Comfortless, " is a great book for someone who has lost a love one. It is a great gift to help find peace in times of grief. John 14:18

Always remember, you are braver then you believe, stronger than you seem....

And angels watch over you.

While we are mourning the loss of our friend, (or family member)
others are rejoicing to meet him beyond the veil. _Pres, John Taylor

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
