    Diana, may God bless and give peace to your family through this time of grief. I know it is hard when your precious mother is taken from you, but you can take solace in the Word of God as it tells us about what happens to a Christian at death and it continues to tell us all about heaven and the beauty that will be found there. No pain, no tears and sadness, no darkness. There will be joy in praising Jesus as we were created to do.
