Famlies are Forever

This evening I went and payed respect to a very dear friend of mine and her family for the loss of their 17 day old little boy Rock. Ever since I heard the news, it has not seemed real. A flood of questions run through your mind. Why....Why so soon.. What could have been done to prevent such a tragedy? How wonderful it is to have the gospel in our life's and know that they will see their son again. How comforting it is to know that we are not alone in times like this. I am thankful for my husband and the temple covenants that we have made. I love my family and am grateful to have the knowledge that we can be together forever. I am thankful to be a Mother and feel blessed for all that I have. My heart is full of gratitude for my Saviour for all that he has done for me.

So sad to heard about Rock. Yes, the gospel does promise family hereafter for which I am so grateful to each of you.
