Dear Cox Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Times like this can be very difficult to deal with. At times, you may feel like there is no one to turn to. You may even feel like no one understands your pain. But there is one person we can turn to that can help us through all of our trials. Yes, God can help you during this difficult time. Pray to him constantly and he will help you. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Isa. 26:19)

My condolences go to the Cox family. It is never easy to cope with the loss of a loved one. But at Revelations 21:3,4 God promises that death will be no more. Imagine what a wonderful time this will be! I hope this message leaves you with comfort in the times to come.
