"Dear Blackwell Family:
My sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one. No doubt that right now this is a crushing blow to the heart. The day will come when your tears of pain will become tears of joy instead. Jehovah God promises to resurrect those sleeping in death and they will have the opportunity to live forever on perfect and cleansed paradise earth. (Ps 37: 11, 29. In time may you find comfort in that promise and may Jehovah the "God of all comfort", help bind your broken hearts."
"Sending loving thoughts and prayers to Ronald, Melinda,Megan, Jesse, Donna and all of the family. Elaine and I were great friends many years ago when Melinda was a child; I will cherish the friendship and memories....RIP Elaine!!!"
