Mrs. Cohen,

While our time together wasn’t a long period, I appreciate you as the “mother” to a wonderful son; my husband. You taught him so many things. He is so very kind and considerate to me. I will love him forever and someday I’ll bring you another pound cake. I promise to take care of Ben for you. Love, Ramona

To the Cohen Family, our concordances for your loss. You are in our prayers.

None of of us should have to be grown before our time, I surely don’t like being grown either Ben.

To The Cohen Family:

I am truly sorry for the loss of your dear love one. Please find comfort in God’s promise found in the Bible at Revelation chapter 21, verse 4. It reads: ” And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

You have my sincere condolence.
