Dear John and Family,

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother, but rejoice in the belief that she is now free of this earth and her suffering. She was, obviously, a wonderful woman as she raised a compassionate, loving family.

I pray for strength and healing for you all. My thoughts will be with you tomorrow as you celebrate your mother's life.
