Dear Chincheck Family: I am so sorry for your recent loss. We are never prepared for such a tragedy. With the love and support shown by loving family,  concerned friends, and the peace from God your heart will mend. Philippians 4:6,7 and Acts 24:15 were very comforting scriptures for me. I hope they do the same for you. Again, I am sorry for your loss.
