    To the Knott family, I was very saddened by the sudden loss of Mary Kay. My condolences and sympathy. Immediately as I heard of her death I was reminded of the nun at St. Mary’s home who died suddenly with a massive attack on Good Friday who said, hours beforehand, ‘what a wonderful day to die.’ She, too, had no premonition. And so it is for Mary Kay. Though we grieve and mourn, she entered into Christ’s resurrection at her birth and has now met Him face to face. May she rejoice this Easter Season with all the saints in heaven.

    I am very sorry to learn of your loss of Mary. It is a challenge to comfort others with mere words over the loss of someone you love. God’s word, the Bible, encourages us to comfort others. Jesus Christ gave us hope when he stated at John 11:25 that he is the resurrection and the life. By means of Him we have the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection as stated at John 5:28,29. How wonderful to see our dear loved ones like Mary return to us, just as Lazarus and others did, by means of an awakening from the sleep of death. (John 11:43,44, Mark 5:39) Our heavenly Father, who is also Jesus’ heavenly Father, loves us and promises at Revelation 21:4 that He will eliminate death, pain, tears and mourning. Please accept this humble, yet sincere condolence. May you have comfort and hope during this difficult time. God cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

    My deepest sympathy to you and all of the family. Mary Kay, my sister (Marlys Mikolich) and I were childhood friends living next door to each other for many years. We saw Mary Kay whenever our cousin, Lois Sample,and Mary Kay got together here in Minneapolis. We will miss that.
