  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort help you during this difficult time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus prayed for God’s Kingdom to come because He knew it would intervene to solve all mankind’s problems even sickness and death. (Revelation 21:3,4 & Daniel 2:44).

  2. After our 38 years together, there are no words to express how I will miss my wife and best friend. She was the finest wife and partner that a man could ever ask for.
