  1. Martin: I’m very sorry to hear about the death of your mother. She was always very warm and welcoming to me, and I think my father was very happy his last 10 years or so because of her. I thought it even a bit poetic that my mother – she died March 2011 – and Maureen could be friends after everything that happened. Again I offer my heartfelt condolences.

  2. I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. The loss of someone close is difficult to bear but may it comfort you to know that others care. I have found great encouragement when reading the beautiful words penned in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 ” He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces.” May this promise also comfort you in this difficult time.
