"We believe in the resurrection of the dead, and that as Jesus came forth from the grave to everlasting life, his Spirit and body uniting again never more to be separated, so has he opened the way for every son and daughter of Adam, whether living or dead, to come forth from the grave to a newness of life, to become immortal souls, body and spirit, united, never to be severed any more" (Gospel Doctrine, p. 312).
Love you, Jase. We are proud of you. We miss you. It's been a year of ups and downs. A lot of struggles with missing you...especially this first year. I can imagine that Easter and Conference are an amazing time where you are. You and Dad know that I miss you both so much. Words can't express how much I miss you. This time of year will forever be hard on us missing both of you. I love April Conference but it will always be a tender time for our family.
I am so grateful for my Savior who gave his life for me. For all of us. Happy Easter.
P.S. I love it that President Monson, during the Sunday morning session of Conference, spoke about a boy named Jason who also had to leave the earth too early. It is such a tender significance that his name is Jason on this day of the year mark of losing our Jason. Thank you President Monson. To me it feels like you were also talking about my brother.
P.S.S. Added note...when my father passed away 18 years ago tomorrow, during conference a speaker spoke about a little boy named Jason whose father had recently passed away. The speaker wasn't talking about our family, but how amazing that it was a boy named Jason who lost his Dad and they spoke about it that weekend we lost our Dad. Truly, the heavens speak to us. To comfort us. I know our Jason is a very special spirit. No question. I truly believe that my brother has much to accomplish on the other side. That he was held back here on earth. That now he can accomplish what he was destined to accomplish.
Sometimes I honestly wonder who my brother Jason is and what he is predestined to accomplish. I know he is someone so amazing. I know that more and more each day. No barriers block him now!
