Janice, Barry, John, And Lou,

I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Though I did not know her, I do know three of you, so I have seen the results of her hard work, dedication, and love. I also know that she will surely be missed. And I am also thankful that you must be comforted by the reassurance that she is now more alive than she has ever been, and that you will one day be reunited with her in God's Kingdom forever. I know that this is not an easy time, but please remember that there are many prayers in your behalf every day. May God hold you in the palm of His hand and remind you of His presence every day.

Dear Landreth/Marshburn 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". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
