Dear Jarman 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)

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". James 5:11; God "is very tender in affection and merciful".Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!

Mary and Miriam, May God comfort you in this time of loss. I attended Campbell University in the 1980s when both of you were there. I know what it is to lose your mom, I lost mine in 2000 so I have walked in your shoes.

Mrs. Jarman was one of the most caring and loving women I have ever had the privilege of knowing. So many fond memories of her growing up in Sanford. Praying for my precious friends Mary and Miriam and your families. So thankful to know we will all be together one day in heaven!
