    I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. You can find much comfort in the Holy Scriptures which assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.

    Dear Family, I am sad to learn of Aunt Irene's death. I have been thinking of her and all of you so much lately. I just learned of this about 10 minutes ago. It is so very hard to lose our loved ones. I am sure that she will be missed greatly by all of her family. Even though we were separated by many miles, I have always felt a closeness to her. As brothers and sisters in the family of Christ, we can celebrate that she is in a much better place. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Janet and Bob
