  1. To the Family Mary Dewey Kyles..
    Sometimes gentle words can do so much to softenthe intense sadness when a dear loved one dies. God’s word acknowledges that our heart can be ‘broken and crushed.’ (Ps. 51:17). But even in severe situations, God can bring relief to a stricken heart if we pray to him in full faith and observe his commandments. May the God of comfort soothe your families aching hearts as the days progress.
