During this time of great sorrow, caring thoughts are with you. So sorry for your loss. Hearts ache when

they are overwhelmed by sadness and grief. May your loving memories of Mary bring a smile to your face and a calm to your heart, as you draw comfort from the “God of all comfort, who comforts us

in all our trials and tribulation”, while you throw all your anxiety on Him, because he cares for You”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4, 1 Peter 5:7

May the marvelous prospect that soon death will be no more, give you hope and bring you peace, for we are guaranteed, “He Jehovah God -Psalm 83:18 will actually swallow up death forever “… Isaiah 25:8 With deepest sympathy…if you would like more comforting info please visit
