    Dear Family,
    Losing a loved one can leave you feeling sad and numb. As the days progress the numbness fades but the sadness still remains. When you are being comforted by your pleasant memories of Gary contemplate how these treasured memories can help you cope with your sadness. (Eccl .3:1,4) May the thoughts and prayers of family and friends also comfort you during this time.
