"Dear Wendy and family... I am so very sorry to learn about your loss of John.

Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life.  Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones.  In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may seem sometimes insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).  

Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and feel free to contact me.
