    To the family and friends of Mrs. Meyer. I am deeply sorry for your loss. It is a tragedy to lose a loved one in death. I know that she will be missed.

    The Bible mentions that not only will God help you through this situation, but it also helps us to appreciate that we will have the opportunity to see our loved ones again. Read Psalms 34:18 and also John 5:28,29.

    I hope these scriptures can provide a sense of comfort for you and your family. All of you are in my prayers…
