    Wishing God’s comfort for the Cornelia Van Loo family.
    It’s difficult at such a time to know what words to say,
    but may God be with you always to sustain you day by day.
    Sometimes there are no words for the feelings in the heart.
    Trusting in God’s Promises Comfort for your sorrow,
    courage for each day, Strength to face this journey,
    His Word to light your way, His peace to fill your heart,
    although you may not understand.
    And God’s love to hold you gently in the hollow of His hand.

    May the peace God’s promise offers help to ease your grief today.
    And may He always be beside you as you go along life’s way.

    With Sympathy
