    Dear Furniss family,
    Please accept my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and I’d like to share where I found help at such a time as this when I lost my entire family to our enemy death. I found comfort and hope in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 there it tells us we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and also at Isaiah25:8 we’re told that this enemy death will be gone forever. With these scriptures and others I’m able to cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I’ll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you now when comfort and hope is needed in hopes that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you’ll feel free to let me know if this helped. I hope to hear from you.
    Sincerely, GM
