  5. Please accept my sincere sympathy on the recent loss of your dear loved one. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the God of comfort be with you in this time of sorrow. May these words bring you hope, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) This promise will be fulfilled one day, until then, may all your memories sustain you in the days to come.

  6. Paul, you’ll always be my hero because of the intensity of your love for Debby, and how you never took “can’t be done” as an answer during her medical treatment. I can’t be there for her service, but Kitty will be to help with the OES part. My heart is sad for both you and Becky, and I offer my deepest and most sincere sympathy.
