Dear Bernard family:

Please accept my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your loved one. Take comfort in knowing that soon all those in the memorial tombs or grave will be resurrected or raised up back to life in conditions free from sickness and death (John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:4). Those are just two of many comforting scriptures found in the Bible. May the God of love comfort your family and friends during your period of mourning.

Our heartfelt sympathy and comfort at the loss of your beloved Mother. As a neighbor, mother to my best friend growing up together Irene was like a second Mom to me. She was beautiful inside and out and I remember her smile and wise words with such joy that God blessed me with her in my life. She will be missed but I know she is watching down on her family and friends. Love you my in peace.

Lynn, Susan, Carol,
Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of your Mom. When I saw this in the paper, all I could think of was how beautiful she was, not only on the outside, but on the inside. Lynn, you were my best friend when I moved into the neighborhood and I loved coming over to play Barbies with you and Susan. Your parents were the nicest people and always treated me so well. Your Mom is now with your Dad and they are smiling on your families. She will be missed so much. I will remember her until I meet her again. Thinking of you all at this time. God bless you.
