My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Betty. Although we hadn't had the opportunity to meet Betty personally we do understand the the pain of losing one so dear. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word found in John 5:28,29. I especially love the resurrection account of Jesus resurrecting Lazarus here on earth back to the arms of those he loved. ( John 11) How wonderful knowing that we too will experience such joy in time. Remember also that our Heavenly Father, Jehovah ( Psalm 34:18) is always there for the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit...... ( Psalm 83:18) Please take a few moments share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
