    Dear High Family

    We are truly sorry for your loss, I know she was a beautiful example of a loving mother and wife.

    Its important to focus on the hope that Jesus himself described in John 5:28,29 and Pauls confidence in Acts 24:15 where it speaks of the resurrection of all those in the memorial tombs. And like you, I too look forward to that reunion.

    If you would like additional comfort or to share other comforting scriptures and thoughts , please contact me at the address below..

    Again please accept our sympathy.
