Thank God I found the "good" in goodbye
Beyonce Knowles

John 3:16 says, 'For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.' Today as we say goodbye, we also celebrate the beginning of a different journey for our loved one - a journey to eternal life. I envision eternal life to be like that described in Revelation 21:4 'And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.'
