Welcome Home My Precious Daughter!

Yesterday evening we learned that our sweet niece has returned to her Father in Heaven. She is free from the bonds and temptations of this world that hold us captive, and now with soundness of mind and body, and eyes that see clearly, she can progress by leaps and bounds toward the eternal joy that awaits us on the other side of the veil. I can imagine her voicing the words of my favorite scripture which is found in 2 Nephi 1:15, "But behold, the Lord hath redeemed my soul from hell; I have beheld his glory, AND I AM ENCIRCLED ABOUT ETERNALLY IN THE ARMS OF HIS LOVE." There is such peace in knowing that she is safe and loved.
