Dear Bill, Benson, Cynthia and David:
I can’t tell you how sorry I am to hear this news. Please know you are all in my prayers. I know our paths don’t cross much but you be surprised how often I find myself thinking of all of you. I am traveling at the moment and can’t arrange to get back in time for which I am truly sorry.
I will be saying prayers for Barrett tomorrow and hope he is now residing in peace with your parents.
All my love
May Our Lord’s Christ Jesus’ promise of a resurrection, strengthen your family until the day when death is no more, and honest-hearted ones will see lost loved ones once again (John 5:28, 29). In the meantime, may the love and support of dear family and friends comfort you.
