    Dear TenBear family,
    At this difficult time I hope you’ll accept my deep regrets and sorrow for your loss. For death is our greatest enemy and always brings nothing but pain and grief and I’d like to share what helped me through such a time when this enemy took my entire family. I received comfort and hope in what Jehovah Gods word the Bible tells us at John11:11 that says our love ones are just asleep and at John5:28,29 Jesus says we’ll see our love ones again and at ICor15:26 we’re told this enemy death will be done away with and it’s these scriptures that help me get through each day because I miss my family so much. I’m truly hoping they’ll help you also for this is my purpose in sharing them with you. Please know that I do share your grief.
    Sincerely, Gloria
