  1. Dear Cathy,

    Please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of your dad. I was so sorry to hear the news.

    I hope that the words of the Bible that say ‘Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted’ will be especially true for you. My prayers will be that you find comfort in your faith as you make it through this very difficult time.

    God Bless You and your wonderful family.

    In Faith & Sympathy,

    Vie and Craig
