To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, and a time to die;

A time to plant, and a time to reap;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

A time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;

A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to gain, and a time to lose;

A time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;

A time to keep silence,and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate;

A time of war, and a time of peace.

    May it comfort you to know that when you lose a loved one who has meant so much to you, the grief that you are feeling cannot take away the happiness you all shared. Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurrection of life. Sorrow will fade in time, but your love for Mrs. Boyd will last forever.
