The love of our Father.

Last night we got a phone call telling us that Cameron's cousin past away. He had been sick for a long time and they just found out that it was cancer, he started chemo but he was to sick for it to work. His name is Jason and he is 15 years old. They have 2 children who are on missions now and one who just received his call last week. All in South America. I believe that they have 6 children.
I laid in bed last night thinking how terrible it would be to lose a child, I can't even imaging how Mary his mother was feeling.
I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have knowing that families are eternal and even though Jason is gone from his family now they will be able to see him again. He is free from his pain and with those who love him and his family who have already passed on.
I love my children and my husband and I am thankful that they are mine for eternity and that Heavenly Father trusts me with them.
I am sorry that this is a bit depressing but I just felt that I should share my feelings.

It's sad, but I think about that all the time. It makes me so grateful for the gospel and the plan of salvation.
