When one's only child leaves this earth, it is not easy to accept the human loss. However, I knew that my adult daughter, whom I did my best to guide and direct in her growing years, was always truly an idea of God.

My task now was to realize the continuity of her spiritual existence as God's eternal, immortal reflection. I must know that she was continuing to live and progress. I had to know that this daughter was made in the "image" and "likeness" of God, and for this reason was indestructible and deathless (see Gen. 1:26, 27). Since God is Life, it was never possible for her existence to end.
