  1. My sympathy to the family for your loss. May the personal memories you each have of Mrs. Lett be a source of comfort, and may the promises that God gives be your source of strength and hope.
    God has promised at Revelation 21:4: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
