With empathy please accept my condolence for the loss of your dear loved one. In times of this nature, all of us need encouragement and comfort, how we appreciate those who lovingly offer it! When we are faced with situations so perplexing that we do not know what to do or say, prayer can be the key, the Bible says “the spirit itself pleads for us.” Then GOD, the “Hearer of prayer,” accepts our heartfelt prayers.-Psalm. 65:2.
