  1. I’m deeply sorry for your loss. Death is never is an easy thing to experience. But there is hope that you can one day see her again. It’s found in the book of John where it says that all those in memorial tombs will hear Jesus voice and come out to a resurrection. No more tears will we shed nor pain will we feel. God promises in Revelation that he will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these words of encouragement help the family to be more at peace.

  2. Dear Jan and Family,

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mother and grandmother. No doubt, your wonderful memories of her will lift you up and help you through this difficult process. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family.

  3. Jan,
    Sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. It’s been a tough year for us too having lost my mom in February. I know you were glad to be able to see her as much as you did these last few months. I was blessed to have mom at our house the last 13 months but I thought it would be longer. I guess we always think it will be longer than it is. I’ll be praying for your peace through your loss. It is bitter sweet that they are better off physically but our heartache is real.
    God Bless your family this week,
    Scott Burgamy

  7. Jan,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I know that it does not matter how prepared you are it is still a hard thing with which to deal. Fortunately, she is in a better place and you have a great support system in Derwin, your girls, and friends. You all are in our thoughts.

    I am thinking of you and what you must be going through as you walk through these days. I am here if you need anything. You are dear to me.

  11. Dear Jan and Family:

    Having lost my mom earlier this year, my heart goes out to you all. The words that you will hear so much — “may your fond memories help to ease the loss” — are absolutely true! My family members often talk about all the good time we had together and you probably will be able to do that one day, too. But for now, please know that you have friends who truly care and send heartfelt sympathies to you all.
