another homegoing

A dear friend said a loving farewell to her Daddy early this morning. She writes:

My sweet Daddy left us in such peace - with all of us around him in each others arms.

The visual that I get from that single line is wonderful. Surprisingly comforting and joyous, in spite of the reality of death. Yes, this kind of loss is sad as we are left behind. But the hope we have of knowing we will see him in heaven is glorious.

...may there be mercy and comfort for my dear friend and her family as they mourn.
