  3. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies. My heart goes out to the family. Death is something we will never get use to. In fact, God’s Word refers to death as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) It is comforting to know that very soon our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, will remove death once and for all and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again here on the earth.

  4. My continued prayers for you, Patty. I know you will miss Garland terribly. We got to know you and him as we rode together & we were so concerned as you kept us informed through his illness.

    Jesus said, “My peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you–not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled; neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27

  5. I cannot even begin to imagine what you’re going through and how difficult all this must be for you. My heart goes out to you during this difficult time. My prayers and thoughts are with you in this grief-stricken time.

  6. Patty my prayers are with you and your family in these grave times. The Lord knows and understands grief as He knows and understands all. He knows best how to comfort you during this time. I pray that He lifts your heart up to Him and fill you with His peace. His understanding is beyond our human comprehension, but gives you knowledge and faith to endure even that which you can’t understand.

    Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. -Matthew 5:4
