“My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Mae.
May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss, is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.

“I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in God's promise of the resurrection where we have the hope of seeing our loved ones again. (John 5:28, 29) May the God of all comfort bring you a measure of peace in this most difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)”
