In Memory of Stella Rosato

Rev. Dr. Richard L. Shaw, Pastor

Our hearts and prayers go out to Frank Rosato and families in the Home going of Frank’s Mom, Stella.  We are comforted by the fact that Stella knew Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, so she is now singing his praises with billions of others of all times who had come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  The Bible assures us that to be absent from the body is to be at Home with the Lord.  Not at some future time, but to be at Home the very instant one is absent from the body.  The last breath drawn here is the first glimpse of Jesus there!  We have the wonderful assurance that the loss of a born-again loved one is not permanent but only temporary.  We will meet again and never again have to say “Goodbye” or “Good night.”  What a day that will be when we are all there together singing God’s praises as one great choir, or maybe many great choirs!  This is a wonderful prospect all Christians are awaiting with a sense of holy excitement.  But I don’t mean to minimize the real painful loss we all experience when we lose a loved one.  We still need- and now especially the Rosatos- the comfort that the God of all comfort brings us as we trust in him and commit our grieving brothers and sisters to his grace and love that he reveals in many new and loving ways.  2 Corinthians 5:8 “We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at Home with the Lord.”
