Dear Garofolo Family, I am sorry for your loss I can't even begin to know what you are going through at this. one of the things that I have found to be great source of comfort is the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28,29 where we see that God is going to bring our loved ones back to life. At Revelation 21:4 we see that God is going to elliminate all of the causes for why we get sick grow old and die. also at at Psalm 37:10,29 we see all those who are good in Gods eyes are going to have the chance of living forever here on paradise earth surrounded by other happy healthy people. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring your family comfort at this time. once again i am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Spiegal Family, I was sorry to hear of the loss of Uncle Jim. He was important to everyone he came into contact with. Not only your family, but the O'Donnell relatives also. My prayers are with you during this emotional time. Theresa
