Dear DeLong Family
Please except my sincere condolences for the loss of your beloved one. The loss of a love one is never easy on the family. But the Bible gives us hope and builds our Faith in Almighty God when we read ( Revelation 21:4 John 5:28,29,30 ). May these scriptures bring comfort to the family during this time of grief.
