  5. My beloved aunt Margaret was a second mother to me in every way. Her home was a refuge, her heart a solas, her hand was generous, her eyes always filled with kindness, her Savior was dear to her. Jesus now gives His precious daughter rest and on that most glorious resurrection morning along with Adam, Abraham, king David, and the faithful of all ages shall hear the trump, “…and the dead in Christ shall rise first then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord” 1 Thes. 4: 16, 17. Let us accept and cherish the wonderful provisions made for us on Calvary that we may all hear that long hoped for declaration “Come ye blessed of my father inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world”. Matt. 34: 34
