We wanted to express our sympathies to you at this your time of grief we pray you be strengthened in the days ahead. We like to share a thought that gave us comfort. At Daniel 12:2 , “And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up, some to everlasting life …” May this thought bring you comfort as it did our family during our time of loss.
