    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my dear mother,
    and found great comfort in the words of Jesus at John 11:11-14,
    where he likens death to being asleep, and at John 5:28,29 – “All
    those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”

    I saw the obituary in the newspaper last night and was deeply saddened. I tossed and turned all night thinking of the Cuthbertson family and the grief that they must be going through. I had to attend the service for Robert, just to pay respects to him and his wonderful family. As it turned out it was a celebration of a life that was full of love, reflection and respect by his family and friends. Take solace in the fact “Betty-mama” that “the anchor will hold in the storm” and that the “cool water” will wash away your tears and refresh you in the days to come, love to all y’all!
