Dear Patty, Sammy and family,

I was so sorry to hear about your mother. Let God’s deep love and understanding help you in your grief. For He is there to ease the pain and bring your sorrowing heart relief.

For Angela:

It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone,

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,

Your love is still our guide.

And though we cannot see you,

You are always by our side.

Our family chain is broken,

And nothing seems the same.

But as God calls us one by one.

The chain will link again.

Let the thought of those supporting you provide comfort during this difficult time.
