“I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Alene’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can’t change anything and can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort calm your hearts and help you heal. One way that God comforts us today is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear.
