    To the family:

    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. I just read about it in the Exchange yesterday.

    I used to go to church with Mr. & Mrs. Swing. They were such a sweet couple. I know you are gonna miss her so much (as I am sure you still miss Robert), but it gets easier as time goes on, even though there will always be a part of your heart missing because of the love you have for them.

    May God put His loving arms around you during this difficult time.

    God Bless you!!!
    Sincerely, Katie

    Angeline and Harold, Kathy, and family,
    I know this is a difficult time for all of you, but I hope you’ll rejoice in the knowledge that your Mom/Grandmother is now at peace with no more suffering. You’ve all done so much for her over the years, and you can rest assured, she knew how much you all loved her. Sorry I can’t be with you now, but I will be visiting with you soon. May God grant you all peace and understanding in the days to come. All my love.
