    Love you sister. I know you miss your Mom, and one day you will see her again. I can only imagine her joy at the feet of Jesus. My mother is there too. I can hardly wait to join them.

    You are continually in my thoughts.
    God Bless.

    I'm not sure it matters what kind of funeral any of us have. It is mostly for all our friends and relatives to accept that we are gone. Our bodies go back to dust no matter how they are enclosed while in the earth. To die is to gain heaven for believers. Absent in body is to be present with our Savior! emoticon

    You are just an amazing beacon of light and hope. I love it. Thank you.

    LOL I too think I want to have a really awesome party instead of a quiet solemn funeral for myself. No black clothes allowed, and everybody celebrating a life well-lived and -loved rather than a life ending. Because of course, as you know, it WON'T be ending. :)

    I don't want a funeral when I move to heaven, I just want a going away party! After all, I'm just changing residences and moving to a much better place! God bless you, Betty, and may He comfort your heart as you remember the good times with your Mother!

    What interesting ways people want to celebrate their lives after they have died but really it is up to those left behind how your funeral will be handled and me for one will not waste my time today thinking about myself when I have died
    one day at a time

    I believe you'd find the party is tradition in many cultures, celebrating life that was your loved one, as if they were still there. Rock on!

    I agree...our relationship with Christ is daily, not just once a week. And the Bible talks about how heaven rejoices when one comes home to Jesus. Have a party in honor of your mom...she will laugh and rejoice with you. emoticon

    I paid for my cremation years ago and requested my ashes be scattered in the gulf. Told my children, have a celebration of my life, not a mourning. Instead of visiting a grave, walk on the beach and remember the fun we had there. Even tho we had formal funeral for my Mom, half of us kids celebrated her life and the other half wailed and beat their chest for the appearance to others. If my Mom had been there she would have wanted to know what their problems were. It smarts not to be able to physically correspond with our love ones, but we know they are no longer in pain and are at peace. Let that comfort you! emoticon

    Betty how wonderful that your mom is back with her brother in heaven making music for God and his angels. They're up there with my dad.. what a grand day that must be on the Grand Ole Opry of Heaven. lol.. Love it.. So glad you are doing well and that you have such an optimistic attitude. You are loved.

    There is such comfort for those of us in Christ when we "lose" a loved one who is also in Christ. We know it's only temporary, and there will be a great reunion. Enjoy the memories and let the tears come to bring healing. God bless you on your journey to being a good steward of your temple, to bring Him glory in everything youdo. Love in Christ, Shel

    My mom wanted a party and that's what we did. No funeral. We had it at her house. We went around town and got all her favorite foods. It was fun remembering her favorites. Good luck.
