Dear family,
I am sorry to hear that you lost your dear loved one. May it comfort you to know that the true God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) has promised to resurrect our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15) May he watch over your family during this time of grief.

To Lucille and Family;

The good news is, Jesus Christ has prepared a way for another child of His own.
The word tells us:For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light(Matthew 11:30). So when Jesus Christ has your back, you can find sweet rest, reguardless of your present circumstances.

With sincere Love, Kitty and Family
