  3. I am very sorry for the loss of your loved one and offer my heartfelt sympathy. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3,4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. I hope you find comfort in these promises.

    I worked with you at JBT, I remember when Holly was born. I think of you often. My ex-mother in-law Sharon used to work for Dennis and always loved him as well. I’m so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers with you and your family.
