  1. To the family of Ms. Hicks:
    I wish to offer my sincere condolence to all concerning your loved one. It is often overwhelming when we deal with the loss of a loved one. Still, may your family and others prove to be a source of solace during this time. Also, I wanted to provide encouragement to the family from God’s word, the Holy Bible. At John 11:5 to 45 almighty God’s son, Jesus, proved to be a real source of encouragement and gave evidence of what he shall do for our loved ones lost in death. Please, when you can, read this passage of scripture and gain comfort that there exist an assured hope for your loved one. I send my sincere fellow feelings and compassion of the heart to you. May all take care and I wish you well being.

  2. Denise, I am so sorry to see this about both your Father and Mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
