  1. Sometimes gentle words can do much to soften the intense sadness when a dear loved one dies. God’s Word acknowledges that our hearts can be “broken and crushed”. (Psalm 51:17) But even in severe situations, God can bring relief to a stricken heart if we pray to him in full faith, and observe his commandments. May “the God of all comfort” soothe the families aching hearts. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

  2. Our sincere condolences to Gerald’s family. My husband was in the same room as Gerald this past Easter.
