  1. I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family. I know this loss must be difficult for you all. May you find real comfort knowing that God is “close to the broken-hearted “. This beautiful assurance that God cares about us is found in the Bible at Psalms 34:18. With sympathy, Kris.
