To the family,
My heart goes out to you at this very difficult time of loss. May the countless memories you shared together be a source of comfort to you at this time. Losing someone you love so dearly is very hard, but please know that God soon promises to do away with all sickness and death Revelation 21:4 and John 5:28,29. I hope you too can find that promises very comforting.
