  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May God give you peace and comfort now and in the days ahead.

  2. I’m sorry for your loss, pain and suffering. Whenever we lose a loved one in death we feel a sting and a void in our hearts, as if someone ripped part of our heart out. The pain seems like it will never go away. It will with time, or it will at least ease
