So sorry to hear about Mary. My condolences to you all. Last time I saw her she was the same Mary as always! I'm sure she was one of my very oldest friends. So sad😔

So very sorry for the tragic loss of your dear loved one. Life seems so unfair to lose someone so dear to you. The Bible provides true comfort for grieving family. Revelation 21:4; tells us: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” May you find comfort in these words and your loving memories.
