To the Family: I am so sorry for your loss. The death of a loved one is never an easy matter for any of us to cope with, but we do have the assurance of our Heavenly Father that he will comfort us in all our tribulations. (Psalms 55:22) Death was never a part of the Creator’s purpose for mankind, so, he has furnished a guarantee by means of his Son, Christ Jesus, that we will see our loved ones again. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28)I pray that you may draw comfort from these words.
Our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your father. He was a sweet man, and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
May God be with your family during these trying times . All my prayers are with yall ,Marvin

I am so sorry I could not be there to be of assistance to you. There are families that stay with me, and your family is one of them. I don’t believe I’ve met kinder, understanding or forgiving folks in a long time. You have been through so much in such a short period of time. I pray a special comfort for you all.
