    John 14:2-3
    In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

  7. CandleThe Angels Came Forth

    So thou gracious hands of love
    Has risen his soul

    As a drooping star above that’s lost its glow

    For in thou greenest of meadows and bluest skies

    All the angels came forth to be near his side

    We shall always remind each and all

    One day his love will come to call

    For now we give best, and send our loved one at rest

    So when we glance up at the nearest star

    We will ponder, wink, and nod to Raul

    For he shall be by our side, for now until eternity dies
