Dear Family, I know that the pain and sorrow you feel of such a great loss is hard to bear. But may the memories of happier times of so many years, help calm the grief and pain that you feel, and when you feel the need for comfort from all the pain, just remember those fond memories you shared. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. Isaiah 25: 8a; Revelation 21:3, 4.
