cry for those left behind, for the lonely ones with hollows in their hearts. I ask You to comfort them, give peace, restore hope, and lavish them with love, family, and belonging. In the depths of loss, Father meet them with Yourself.
I cry for the legacy this loved one leaves, for the ways the world has been made different by their presence, for the memories that become both more beautiful and more painful on this side of death. And Father I pray that the work You have accomplished in this remarkable life will grow deeper, wider, and stronger in the days to come, uninhibited by a weak opponent like death. In Jesus precious and Holy name, Amen
