To the bereaved family:

Earth has no sorrows that Heaven cannot heal. Although the pain and suffering may be great for the loss of someone so speacial and dear to you, I pray that God will grant you peace to carry on. This peace does not come over night, the next week, or next month. It is a process that takes time. The Bible says that weeping may endore for a night, but joy comes in the morning. My prayer is that your night of weeping ends briefly and the morning is filled with the love and treasurable moments and memories of Kristen Guptil. May God bless you and keep you.
