I knew my Aunt Lucille from the time I was a baby. She had a heart of love for every member of her family and was there for many of her nieces and nephews when they were desperate. I look forward to seeing her in Heaven when we both have our new body and no more suffering and sorrow. My sympathy to her entire family. Proverbs 3:5-6

You do not cry alone. ... He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away." And the One seated on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." Revelation 21:3-5. Until that day, do not forget that He is aware.
