Dear Yoder family,
Please accept my deep regrets for your loss. You don't know me but this greatest
enemy death always brings grief and pain and it did the same to me when I lost my
whole family to it. But comfort and hope is found in Jehovah Gods word the Bible
at John 11:11 and Mark 5:39 that  they're just asleep and Jesus states at John
5:28,29 that we'll see our loved ones again and this helps me get through each day
because I miss  them so much. I truly hope these scriptures have helped in some
way because this is my purpose in sharing this with you. Please know I share your
Sincerely, Gloria Mosley
