To Charlene

Let Go and Let God!
When you're troubled and worried and sick at heart and your plans are upset and your world falls apart, remember God's ready and waiting to share the burden you find much too heavy to bear-- So with faith, "let go" and "let God" lead the way into a brighter and less troubled day.

Sending my Deepest Sympathy to you and your family with Love

Just wanted to bring a message of hope from the bible at Revelation 21:3,4 where God promises an eventual end to death and sorrow:

With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: "Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

Hoping that you and your family can derive some comfort from this biblical promise,

Jeff
