In His Arms

My mother-in-law passed away and her funeral was Saturday. It wasn't unexpected, but there's a hole with her gone.
I feel great joy knowing she's in a realm of peace and love. Brad (my husband) told me about a beautiful statue that's in the funeral home. It's an old woman reaching through a veil while waving good-bye the other way ... on the other side of the veil she's a young woman again, bathed in light. Tis is how I picture her passing.
It was really sweet seeing family and friends. I imagine she was right in the midst of us, happier than ever because we were all together.
