I want you to know how truly sorry I am for your loss. Losing someone you love & care so deeply for hurts beyond measure, but do be consoled in knowing that they are no longer in pain or suffering. It's the most difficult thing in the world losing the one you hold so close to your heart, but let it comfort you knowing that they are now at peace in the arms of our Lord.

With all my love & sympathy,
Susan Burson Alexander
