My wife died two days before 9/11, in a foreign country so you can only imagine how difficult that was to deal with. I must say that the State Department was very gracious in helping me get things in order. I find it interesting that the word Grace is used hear but there is no mention of God's Grace. Those that have chosen the road of faith take great comfort in that word because of the spiritual meaning. God's Grace is sufficient for those that choose to receive it. With Christmas around the corner, maybe people should take the time to reflect the true meaning of Christmas. Death is a part of life and faith helps you embrace it without fear. Two people die every second, 150,000/day. Life is short, Eternity is forever.
