Oh, Eddie, Carolyn said it so well--what heavy hearts we have to learn this sad news. Yet the first thing that struck me after the sorrow is the day on which Rose went to Heaven, and why she has that assurance. Today, Easter, the celebration of the resurrected Christ, gives Rose the joy of being with God because of that miracle. She is with Him now, and she is not in pain or fear anymore. She is safe at home.
You will be in all of our hearts and prayers, Eddie, as you pass through these next days. Know we are with you and love you, just as we always have loved Rose and the two of you together. When you need us, come and tell us; we will be right here.
