May the love of family, the support of friends, and the many fond memories shared over the years give you comfort through this time of sorrow. May our Heavenly Father Jehovah give you inner peace and strength to cope with the days ahead. Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress.
