(Loss of Wife) Inside right greeting:
Though God has called her home she will always be near you.
The life and faith you shared gives the assurance that Love does live on and one day you will be together again...
Inside left scripture:
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Cor 13:7
Back panel a beautiful quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
There is nothing that can replace the absence of someone dear to us, and one should not even attempt to do so. One must simply hold out and endure it. At first that sounds very hard, but at the same time it is also a great comfort. For to the extent the emptiness truly remains unfilled one remains connected to the other person through it. It is wrong to say that God fills the emptiness. God in no way fills it but much more leaves it precisely unfilled and thus helps us preserve -- even in pain -- the authentic relationship. Furthermore, the more beautiful and full the remembrances, the more difficult the separation. But gratitude transforms the torment of memory into silent joy. One bears what was lovely in the past not as a thorn but as a precious gift deep within, a hidden treasure of which one can always be certain.
