My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Mary. Although we hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Mary personally we do understand the pain of losing one so dear. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. Our Heavenly Father is truly a wonderful source of comfort, he is always there for the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit ( Psalm 34:18) Please take a few moments, share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
