    I am so very sorry for your loss of your beloved husband and the pain in your heart. I extend my sympathy to your family as well. I was shocked to hear just a little over a week ago that he was ill and the prognosis was poor.
    I know I really have no words that can comfort your heart, there is only One that can and my prayer is He will embrace and hold you and all your family close at this time and the days and weeks ahead. He is so very close to the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit. God bless you.
