With the loss of your loved one I hope you can make a little time to study the Bible for yourself.
I hope that seeing the promise for yourself, and making this resurrection hope your very own, can give you some genuine comfort during this difficult time.
Thank you for reading my message.

Dear Bob, Jason, & Family,
I was sorry to learn of your mother’s passing from my sister Leona. Helen was my oldest cousin. I remember many good times playing with her as a child. Helen always kept me informed about how you and the family were doing.
I just had a should replacement and am not going to be able to attend the memorial service. But know that I will miss her.
My deepest sympathy,
