Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~

Lord, God! Please do give them strength to bear what they must. On this last journey to give their loved one a place to rest...to await...in what we have believed. Father, if you will, ease their pain, and quickly wipe their tears, that joy may soon and again have a place in their hearts. Those steps, each and every one, Lord God, that no one wants to take; those steps which lead to finality, to closure, to goodbye....Lord lift them up and hold them up, and help them get through it. That in the end, they might remember, that you give, and you take away...and that is the legacy we must endure. I know Lord, you will remember your servant Victoria. I pray you will extend your promise of Salvation to all her family, and if he didn't know you, that he repented even in those last moments. Father have mercy, and I ask it in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.
