“Dear Rene, God's gift of time We all need a time to grieve - quiet time for reflection to sift through memories and come to grips with what has happened. We all need a time for tears, not for the one who is now at peace in heaven, but for ourselves as we realize that things will never be the same. We all need a time to just "be" when we can open ourselves to God and let the reassurance of His everlasting love start to heal our broken hearts. Praying for you and wishing you peace. ”
