Saying good-bye is never easy.
We who are made for eternity struggle with goodbye.
It’s not right, it isn’t fair.
This one who made us laugh and shared our deepest hurts.
Has gone before us to be welcomed to real life.
We forget this life is but a beginning.
An introduction to eternity.
Father, use this hurt to draw us to Yourself.
Remind us of the many who have no hope in death.
Give our grief words.
