  9. Dear Havenstein family,
    I’d like to express my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and share where I found much hope and comfort when this enemy death took my entire family. I found this in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and Isaiah25:8 tells us that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. With these scriptures and others I’m now able to cope with my loss for now I know that I’ll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you when comfort and hope is needed such as now in hopes this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you’ll feel free to let me know if I accomplished my purpose. Hoping to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
