My deepest condolence to your family and friends during the most difficult time. There are no words that can ease the pain of losing a loved one.

It brings us great sadness when we lose a loved one, we find peace in knowing that God has taken away their pain and suffering and it is through faith we must make peace with our pain of our loss. May each member of my family know the love they are given and may find the moments in our lives to share that love. My Sympathy to Melvin, Kelvin, Alvin, and Daryl in the lost of their mother , may God grant you peace and comfort and healing.

We wanted to express our sympathies to you at this your time of grief we pray you be strengthened in the days ahead. We like to share a thought that gave us comfort. At Daniel 12:2 , "And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up, some to everlasting life ..." May this thought bring you comfort as it did our family during our time of loss.
