Love never faileth.
1 CORINTHIANS 8:8
Your heart shall live for ever.
DEATH has no bidding to divide
The souls that dwell in Thee;
Yes, all who in the Lord abide
Are of one family.
THOMAS H. GILL
WILL not our own lamented and beloved be there, in the array of happy spirits? Will they not hail our coming with delight? Do they not remember us now, even in the sight of God? For to see His face does not extinguish but perfect all holy loves. God's love gathers up and perfects all pure love like His own, all love that is for His sake. When we meet our beloved in Him, we shall both know and love them so as we have neither loved or known before.
HENRY EDWARD MANNING
She is not sent away, but only sent before; like unto a star, which, going out of our sight, doth not die and vanish, but shineth in another hemisphere: ye see her not, yet she doth shine in another country.
