    My deepest sympathy for your loss. The loss of a loved one can be a very difficult thing to bear. Wishing you peace and comfort by God's promise of a new day when all things will be made new. Sickness and death will cease, no more mourning, pain or grief, as God has promised to wipe away all tears from our eyes, Rev 21:3-5. God has also promised to restore life to all who He remembers Acts, 24:15. May you be comforted by faith in the future fulfillment of God's promise of a new heavens and new earth where righteousness will dwell, 2 Peter 3:13 and Psalm 9-11, 29.

    Knew you many years at work and a couple times at your home. You were a friendly and pleasant person to be around. We had many laughs together; will not forget you.
