Dear Yoder family, At this most difficult time please accept my condolence
and deep regrets for your loss and I'd like to share where I found help at such
a time when this enemy death took my entire family. I found this help in what I
read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John 5:28,29 for there it tells us we'll
see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back
here on earth and Isaiah 25:8 tells us this enemy death will be swallowed up
forever. I'm now able to cope with my loss and get through each day with
these scriptures and others because now I know I'll see my family again and I
wanted to share this with you at this difficult time when hope and comfort is
needed in hopes that this will help you also in some way for this is my
purpose in sharing this with you at this time. Please feel free to let me know if
it has at and please know that I do share your
grief and hope to hear from you.
Sincerely, Gloria Mosley
