On Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2008, God took me home to heaven to be with loved ones who have gone on before me.

There I will join my husband, Edward, a wonderful man of God who I had the privilege of being married to for 29-1/2 years. I am leaving behind our children: Hope; Nathanael and his wife, Mindy, and grandson, Joseph; Grace and her husband, Frank, and grandson, Malcolm; Josiah; and Joy. But my separation is only for a short while, as they will join Ed and I, and many others in their God-appointed time.

Do not be sorrowful for me but be glad. God has fulfilled His purpose in my life and in my death. By His grace and gift of salvation by Christ's death on the Cross for my sins, I am experiencing eternal joy in heaven and in communion with God and Jesus Christ.

To all my friends, and even my enemies, my last prayer and hope is that you too will experience the joy of God's love through Jesus Christ His Son. God's gift is free. God provided the sacrifice of His Son on the Cross to pay for all of our sins so that we would not have to experience eternal death.

John 3:16 states that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. God wants you to experience the joy, love and peace that I experienced in my life even though these last years were filled with many physical and emotional adversities. God was with me and carried me through all this. And even though the final outcome was physical death, God began my new life with Him for all eternity. What an immense blessing for me, one who was not worthy of His kind of love.

May God truly grant all those who read this His peace and joy, and may you search His Scriptures and allow God to open up for you the truth that will truly set you free from all the bondages of the present world. I love you all and thank you for the love that was shown to me while I lived my short life in the world that God created for us.

Love in Christ, Molly Flader of Kingman.
