    In deepest sympathy to you and you family. It seems there is very little anyone can say or do to ease the loss of one who meant so much to you…
    But, may you find some comfort in knowing that many thoughts and prayers are going up to God to help you get through this sorrow that you bear. Peace, Love and Blessings Always.
