Dear family and friends of Florence,
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. During this difficult time I hope that you can focus on the memories you shared but also find comfort from God's word. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 describes God as "a father of tender mercy and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials.." God gives us comfort through the beautiful hope of seeing our loved ones again. John 5:28,29
