To the Family
I was saddened to hear of the lost of your dear loved one.
We read of the Bible's promise of a paradise earth where we soon will be able to live out our lives the way that God intended and to enjoy life to the full. (Isa. 65:21-25) Hold on to that hope and please accept my condolences.
