Dear Yoder family,
I'm very sorry for your loss and though we don't know each other I'm
hoping you'll accept my deep regrets and sorrow for your loss because
death is our greatest enemy and always brings much grief and pain and I
went through this when I lost my entire family to this enemy death but I
found comfort and hope in what Jehovah Gods word the Bible says at John
11:11 that says our love ones are just asleep and John 5:28,29 Jesus tells
us  that we'll see our love ones again and at I Cor 15:26 says this enemy will
be done away with and these scriptures help me get through each day
because I miss my family so much and I'm truly hoping these scriptures will
help you also for this is my purpose in sharing them with you. Please know
that I do share your grief.
Sincerely, Gloria Mosley
Mary Ellen Yoder
