David, Carol and Kenny,
I am so sorry to hear about Mary's passing. I viewed her as dear friend. Because of distance, we didn't see one another very often....but we always caught up on our families and relived old memories when we did. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
God bless you all with peace of heart.

Dear David, Carol and Kenny,
Lynne and I are sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Mary. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Aunt Mary was loved by her family and countless others and she will truly be missed - we know you are already experiencing her separation.
I know God's grace is sufficient and that He will give you the strength you need in the days to come.
God bless you and we love you!
