We want to extend our deepest sympathy for your loss of Louise which is the most devastating experience your family will face. At times, the pain of your loss will feel unbearable. Please know that there are friends who care about you and your family during this difficult time. Most importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with your family during this difficult time of grief.
