    I would like to offer my condolences to the family. Mere words cannot express the grief that comes from losing a dear loved one to death. What can give us a measure of comfort is the Bibles promises of the day when sickness and death will be no more. Such words can hopefully ease the pain you all are experiencing at this time of sorrow. May the God of ALL comfort keep you enduring now and in the days to come. And may happy memories warm your hearts. – Revelation 21:3-5; 2 Corinthians 1:2-4
