Dear Gooding family,
I'd like to express my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and share where I found help when this enemy death took my entire family. I found this help in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we'll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and ICorintians15:26 states that this enemy death will be brought to nothing. All this is what helps me cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I'll see my family again and I wanted to share this with you at this difficult time when hope and comfort is needed in hopes this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you and please feel free to let me know if I accomplished my purpose at gloriamosley@hotmail.com and please know that I do share your grief and hope to hear from you.
Sincerely, GM
