Edwards: Death Leaves No Joy Behind

When a saint dies, he has no cause at all to grieve because he leaves his friends and relations that he dearly loves, for he doth not properly leave them. For he enjoys them still in Christ; because everything that he loves in them and loves them for, is in Christ in an infinite degree

--Jonathan Edwards, Miscellany 'h', in Works of Jonathan Edwards (Yale), 13:167
