    My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Esther. Although we never had the opportunity to meet Esther personally we wanted to share with you comfort from Gods word found in John 5:28,29. Jesus showed us a wonderful example of the resurrection when he resurrected Lazarus here on earth back to the arms of those he loved. ( John 11) Remember also that our Heavenly Father expresses his loving compassion for all of us when someone we love dies. ( Psalm 34:18) Be sure to share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you a sense of peace and joy to your hearts as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
