Dear Cecil and Jane, Cecil 3rd and nephews,..

VVer7I am so very sorry to learn of your loss. "A" and I go way back as you know. I will miss her smiling face and laughter. We used to see each other in the supermarket from time to time and stand there talking about old times and the fun we had growing up in the people used to mistake us for each other and they did with my brother Ronnie and Cecil. May you have many memories of the past to support and comfort you in the days ahead. She is just another angel up in heaven to watch over you and your family.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Adrienne Bishop. We occasionally met with other members of our support group for lunch due to our shared disease. She was such a lovely girl and will be missed.

Dear William,

I am so sorry for the loss of your sister, Adrienne.

I know this must be a difficult time for you. And it is during difficult times like this, where I have found comfort and hope in the promise found at John 5:28, 29 where it tells us that "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice (meaning God's) and come out." How encouraging it is to know that we have the chance of seeing our dead loved ones again, right here on earth! What a wonderful promise the bible promises!

William, I encourage you, to draw close to God in prayer and as brought out in Psalm 55:22 "and he himself (meaning God) will sustain you."
