Our deepest condolences to the family. We are so sorry for your loss. May your loving memories of Pauline help you through this difficult time. May our loving, heavenly Father, who is the God of all comfort, give you the strength and comfort that you need (2 Corinthians 1:3, Psalms 83:18). He promises us that soon, "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore" (Revelation 21:3, 4). May all of His promises concerning our loved ones who have passed away give you peace.
