To the family of Mrs. Langford:
I wanted to offer my condolence to you all in this time of loss of your loved one. Such times as these can be heavy on the mind and heart and cause many to reflect on the life of those we have come to love. I also wanted to offer some encouragement to all from an account in the Bible. In a copy of the Bible please read JOHN 11:5 to 45. Jesus experienced the loss of a dear friend and it moved him emotionally. He spoke comfort to the surviving family members and was even empowered by his heavenly father to reverse the effect of the loss of their loved one. Jesus was setting the stage to do such a thing on a much grander scale in the future for the joy of all. Should like to know more I’d be glad to share this assured hope with you. In the meantime, may your family provide soothing comfort and support to one another in this time of rememberance and reflection. Take care and much compassion and fellow feeling to you all.
All of my love and warmth to Marjorie’s family and her many friends. I am a better woman for having her in my life.
