My heart goes out to the family. I am so sorry for your loss. No pain hurts worse than the pain of losing someone that you love. Mary-Lou was loved and she will be dearly missed. Again, I am so sorry. Though the pain you’re feeling must seem unbearable, please remember that you are not alone. Psalms 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress.” Pray to Him for strength. Weep to Him when there are no words. One of the poets of the Bible said at Psalms 56:8, “You keep track of my wandering. Do collect my tears in your skin bottle.” You see, God understands your pain and He cares for you very much (1 Peter 5:7) and He will really help you get through this difficult time (Isaiah 41:10).
Deepest sympathies to you and your family Dave.
To Dave Hildebrand & Family. We are very sorry for your loss. All of you are in our hearts and prayers. Richard & Janet Webster.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May God’s love give you strength to face each new day and may time and memories bring you comfort and peace. We will always remember how special your mom made all of us feel and we will miss her dearly.
