I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting your family but by all the wonderful comments its clear you lost someone who was dearly loved by many and will truly be missed. I recently lost my grandfather just last month. He was my most favorite person throughout my childhood. It’s so hard to know just how to say goodbye. But I do take comfort in knowing that God promises that if we draw close to Him then He will draw close to us - James 4:8. And He truly has been there when I seek His comfort in prayer so I hope your family can do the same. I also recommend This website has lots of helpful information on loss and grief. Take a look when you have a moment. I do hope it helps.

Mr. & Mrs. John Goding - 12/02/2014

You'll be missed and loved always mom! You have been always a great mother to us. Always ready to lend support when we needed the most. You are safe now and in good hands. You've always wanted to be with Dad and your wishes finally came true. It's hard to see you go but it's for the better. Colin will miss singing " you are my sunshine " to you.... I love you mom. Till we meet again...

My heartfelt condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one, Ms. Goding. May you find comfort in knowing that God is near and ready to help you through this sad and difficult time, for at Psalm 34:18 we are told "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit."
