We also thank you that you are a God who always brings life from death. That because of the resurrection, death does not have the final word, life does. And thank you that she now resides with you in your unending embrace of love, with Charlie, her mom and dad, her brother and sister, her grandson, and other family and friends gone before.
And Father, please surround this family with your love that they may not be overwhelmed by their loss, but have confidence in your goodness in the midst of their pain. I pray that they might meet the days ahead with courage and conviction; not sorrowing as those without hope, but in joyful expectation of eternal life with you, and all those they love, through the One who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
