Dear Family,
I am sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one. The days ahead may be both good and bad, but that’s okay because everyone grieves differently. The one thing you can count on is the love from our God Jehovah and his son Christ Jesus ( John 3:16) As you go through the months ahead please allow that love to help you.
