    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in knowing that God is “near to those that are broken at heart; and those those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34;18) Our loving Creator has promised to soon “swallow up death forever…and wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25;8) With deepest sympathy,
