Dear Kathy and family,
I wanted to express my deepest sympathy on the loss of your dad. I was shocked to hear of his passing. He was such a sweet man. I always enjoyed talking to him when I would need to call him. He was such a good tenant to my dad for all those years. He was blessed to live such a long life. May your memories bring you comfort during this difficult time.

I’m so sorry to read of your loss. While there is nothing that can take the sting of death away, may you find comfort in God’s promise to one day, “swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and to “wipe away the tears from all faces,” (Revelation 21:4) And even more comforting to know, God will have “all those in the memorial tombs come out” free of sickness, old age and pain. (John 5:28,29) May these scriptures help you cope until that time comes. For more information, type the following link into your browser: tinyurl.com/mezwv23.
