"A Father of the fatherless, and a Judge of the widows, Is God in His holy habitation" (Psalm 68:5).
Through the years, I have found the above scripture to be true. Unfortunately, it is also the case that widows and their families are often neglected and forgotten. Just this year (2020), 336 thousand people in the United States have died due to Covid 19. This means that there are thousands of persons who have lost a spouse.
The purpose of this ministry is to provide spiritual support and biblically based counseling for individuals who have lost a spouse. Please don't grieve alone in silence. Let Remembered help.
Like many others, the trajectory of my life has not remained untouched by the unwelcomed intruder of death. My family and I learned, by the grace of God, how to move on with our lives. My daughter, Tiffany has written about our experience of overcoming grief.
One of my favorite books Ministry of Healing addresses the issue of loss.

Widows and Orphans“Thy Maker is thy husband; Jehovah of hosts is His name: And the Holy One of Israel is thy Redeemer; The God of the whole earth shall He be called.”
“Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; And let thy widows trust in Me.”
Isaiah 54:5, A.R.V.; Jeremiah 49:11.
Many a father, when called upon to part from his loved ones, has died resting in faith upon God’s promise to care for them. The Lord provides for the widow and the fatherless, not by a miracle in sending manna from heaven, not by sending ravens to bring them food; but by a miracle upon human hearts, expelling selfishness, and unsealing the fountains of Christlike love. The afflicted and bereaved ones He commits to His followers as a precious trust. They have the very strongest claim upon our sympathy. In homes supplied with life’s comforts, in bins and granaries filled with the yield of abundant harvests, in warehouses stocked with the products of the loom, and vaults stored with gold and silver, God has supplied means for the sustenance of these needy ones. He calls upon us to be channels of His bounty. Many a widowed mother with her fatherless children is bravely striving to bear her double burden, often toiling far beyond her strength in order to keep her little ones with her and to provide for their needs. Little time has she for their training and instruction, little opportunity to surround them with influences that would brighten their lives. She needs encouragement, sympathy, and tangible help. God calls upon us to supply to these children, so far as we can, the want of a father’s care. Instead of standing aloof, complaining of their faults, and of the trouble they may cause, help them in every way possible. Seek to aid the careworn mother. Lighten her burdens. Then there are the multitudes of children who have been wholly deprived of the guidance of parents and the subduing influence of a Christian home. Let Christians open their hearts and homes to these helpless ones. The work that God has committed to them as an individual duty should not be turned over to some benevolent institution or left to the chances of the world’s charity. If the children have no relatives able to give them care, let the members of the church provide homes for them. He who made us ordained that we should be associated in families, and the child nature will develop best in the loving atmosphere of a Christian home. Many who have no children of their own could do a good work in caring for the children of others. Instead of giving attention to pets, lavishing affection upon dumb animals, let them give their attention to little children, whose characters they may fashion after the divine similitude. Place your love upon the homeless members of the human family. See how many of these children you can bring up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Many would thus be greatly benefited themselves.
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He will strengthen thine heart. Wait I say on the Lord. (Psalm 27:14)
