    Dear Moody Family, Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the recent loss of your dear loved one. I’m sure she will be missed by many. May the God of Comfort be with each of you during this difficult time. May you find hope in these words, ” And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) While we wait on this promise to be fulfilled, I hope all of your wonderful memories help sustain you in the days to come. Warm Christian Love.
