I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. God bless you.

Suzanne McCarthy said...

Thank you, everyone.

Martin, it is good to hear from you!

My mother died 18 years ago and it was very sad - tragic really. Ever since, my father disapproved of the fact that he outlived her. In this, and in his strong Christian faith, he is at rest. He died very peacefully and one of his careworkers told us that his last words were to put his finger on her name tag and say,

"Jesus loves me and he loves you, and I am going to heaven now."

"Jesus loves me and he loves you, and I am going to heaven now."

What a precious testimony. How blessed you are to have had such a father!

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints"

Psalm 116

So sorry to hear this. Same thing happened to me - although I was driving, not flying. It's good to hear that he died at peace.
