“Doreen- I wish I had the words to take away all your pain, as being a past member of study groups where I have witnessed countless prayers of support and blessings onto others. I may have met your son only a few times, but watching you and knowing your Strong beliefs... it is no surprise reading the nice things mentioned about him by those who knew him better. I want you to know many are thinking about your family and friends, and our prayers are with you all. Don’t ever change, and many love you. I know you know that, but it never hurts being told.”
