“I didn't know Tammy personally but I am very sorry for the pain you, her family and friends, are experiencing. At these sad moments, I've found these verses comforting, Acts 1:3, 4. There it says our God and Father and his son Jesus comfort us during trials, so that we can comfort others during any sort of trial. Certainly, the loss of a dear loved one is the most difficult trial. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.”
