  1. To the family and dear friends of Mr. Ross:
    I wanted to express my condolence to you at this time of your loss. It can be a difficult reality to deal with at times like these. May you find the strength to provide comfort and encouragement to one another at this time of loss. I also wanted to provide some comforting encouragement from an account from God’s word, the Holy Bible. Please give attention to an account in the new testament section of the Bible on the book of JOHN. Located at JOHN 11:5 to 45, God’s son, Jesus, not only felt the pain of the loss of a dear friend, he did something about it. Jesus fortified the joy and faith of others to look to him for a better future. Should you like to understand more I’d be quite happy to assist. Again, take care and know that a true, more vibrant future awaits our loved ones per God’s purpose for mankind here on earth. .
